The next exhibition at the Deines Cultural Center in Russell, Selected Works from Friday Art Factory is open.
David Friday was born in McPherson and moved to Russell in 1967 and attended Russell High School. After graduating, he attended Wichita State University. Friday has been painting since high school. He taught himself how to paint by copying Picasso and other favorite artists. His first solo exhibition was in 1975 at McPherson College.
After living in San Diego, Calif., Austin, Texas, Wichita, and Albuquerque, N.M., Friday returned to Kansas and recently settled back in Russell and has a new barbershop/art studio on Wichita Ave.
The artist paints every day and posts his work on Facebook. Follow him @ DAVID FRIDAY-FRIDAY ART FACTORY.
