Starting Thursday night, the McKay Gallery will offer a special two-evening exhibit of images by documentary photographer Marc Steiner.

Titled “Deenbandhu: Relative of the Poor,” the collection follows the work of Father George Kavukatt, a Catholic priest who has ministered to Adivasi (tribal) people in the dry wasteland of Thane, the Mahasrashtra province for the past 30 years.

Fr. Kavukatt will be present at a reception Thursday night, and the show will run through Friday, before traveling to Texas, Florida, Chicago, London, Germany, Sweden and Italy over the next four months.

Hours for both nights are 5p to 9p. The gallery is located at 12 Monmouth Street, second floor.

McKay’s next show will be a regular monthlong exhibit featuring the work of Anthony Almeida, scheduled to open June 29. Stay tuned.
