Alluring Visions,” Moraga Art Gallery’s Holiday Show, will be on display Devcember 1-Jan. 30.

Front and center, the Moraga Art Gallery’s gift-rich holiday show, “Alluring Visions,” features Wenda Pyman, known for her colorful landscape photographs but in this exhibit, she explores the details of the natural world to the point of abstraction, rather than the “big picture” as well as showing her dramatic black-and-white images, influenced by such masters as Ansel Adams, Imogen Cunningham, Edward Weston and others of the f64 Club.

The show also includes a collection of visually compelling paintings of the world around us by two renowned guest artists: Charles White and Geoff Meredith. White, whose luminous work adorns gallery walls, book covers, greeting cards, calendars, puzzles and plates, is one of America’s most prolific and popular oil painters.

Meredith is a master of  representational abstractions, devoted to 21st century reinterpretations of the “Bay Area’s Figurative Movement” of the 1950’s and 60’s. ions of texture and color–are provocative and spontaneous.
