Moraga Art Gallery presents a new show, “An Elegant Balance”

The exhibit, An Elegant Balance, will be open on February 20 – May 2, 2021. Early in 2020 Covid-19 put an end to the popular receptions held in conjunction with the opening of each new show at the Moraga Art Gallery. To express their gratitude for community support since then, the gallery’s members cordially invite the public to a special reception on Saturday, April 24th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm to be held in the plaza in front of the gallery

An Elegant Balance features the work of member artists, watercolors by George Ehrenhaft and jewelry by K. de Groot.

The show’s title derives from the juxtaposition of two artistic visions:  George Ehrenhaft’s interpretations of nature and the urban world alongside K. De Groot’s jewelry, each piece personal, portable, and unique.

As a watercolorist, George Ehrenhaft draws inspiration from mountains, lakes, trees and towns.  His style ranges from realistic to the vaguely abstract.  His paintings push no boundaries. Rather, they please the eye, soothe the spirit, and invite viewers to enjoy the wonders of the world around us.

Symphonies of color & texture in each piece are hallmarks of K. de Groot’s jewelry designs. Inspired by the exotic pendants and beads that she discovered over the past 30 years during her life in Asia and during her more recent travels, she has created her one-of-a-kind cross cultural wearable art.  

The Moraga Art Gallery’s Gift Boutique features handmade gift items created by local artists including glass items, ceramics, beautiful wooden bowls, small paintings, decorative pillows, cards and jewelry. 

Moraga Art Gallery is a cooperative featuring the work of eighteen established local artists and artisans and (five ?) guest artists whose work includes painting, sculpture, jewelry, print media, ceramics, photography and woodworking. 

The gallery is open Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 12pm-4pm and by appointment. Please email the gallery at moragaartgallery@gmail.com to make an appointment. 

To safeguard our gallery staff and visitors, we require everyone visiting the gallery to wear a face mask and to maintain social distancing.

The gallery is located at 432 Center Street, Rheem Shopping Center, in Moraga.
