Moraga Art Gallery Announces a new art exhibit: Dark and Light, A Delicate Balance. Please note our new hours.

The Moraga Art Gallery announces a new art exhibit, “Dark and Light, A Delicate Balance,” which will run from July 21 – September 12, 2020.

Moraga Art Gallery is a cooperative featuring the work of nineteen established local artists and artisans whose work includes painting, sculpture, jewelry, print media, ceramics, photography and woodworking. Each member is accomplished in their field and meets high standards of workmanship and originality in order to qualify for membership.

This exhibit features the work of member artists, Irene Needoba and Mary Leigh Miller. 

"I am talking to you", painting by Irene Needoba.

Irene Needoba, works with oils, resin and mixed media. In this series of paintings, she seeks to bring attention to the role we have in our environment. Her paintings reflect climate change, pollution within the ocean and fires that result from extreme changes in weather.

Mary Leigh Miller works in clay. Her work in this exhibit explores our inner selves through a series of masks and everyday objects, and the outer reality of our intimate surroundings captured in a grouping of garden totems.

In addition, come see the jewelry and encaustic paintings of our guest artist, Claudette McDermott

We have limited hours. In July they are: Tues, Thurs and Sat, from noon to 3:00pm. Starting August 1st the gallery will be open Sat and Sun, from noon to 3:00 p.m. Please call first to confirm hours.

To safeguard our gallery staff and visitors, we require everyone visiting the gallery to wear a face mask and to maintain social distancing by keeping at least six feet apart. The gallery has hand sanitizer for guests to use when entering the gallery and gloves will also be available at the front desk for handling prints and ceramics. We are limiting the number of customers to four people at a time.

For those art lovers who choose to continue SIP, and are missing their visits to our gallery, we have made a “Shelter in Place” Virtual tour of the current exhibition. If you wish to purchase any artwork displayed here or work you have seen in the past, please contact the gallery. We can also put you in touch with the artist, if you have a question or a specific piece in mind.
