Manna Gallery is pleased to open our final exhibition for this challenging year of 2020. The exhibition opens Saturday, October 31 and continues to Saturday, December 18. Mark and Wilma will be at the gallery Saturday, November 7 from 12 to 5 pm to greet gallery visitors and discuss the ideas and issues contributing to the development of their new work.
Oakland artist Mark Lightfoot will present his latest artworks in fused glass, including a dinner service with serving dishes
Berkeley mosaic artist Wilma Wyss will present both sculptures and wall pieces, including a large statement sculpture representing the challenges of the ongoing pandemic and the response from the community.
Wyss says this about her work," My mosaic artwork is a reflection of my life experiences…. My inspiration comes from outdoor spaces, particularly the Northern California landscape…My art practice takes me in two complementary directions: fine art mosaics and commission work for public and private spaces. I enjoy the technical challenges my work presents, whether applying tesserae to a concrete substrate or welding a steel armature. I create work that is durable, with a physical presence, and strong tactile sensations."
