Nedra Matteucci Galleries' late summer exhibition will open with an artists' reception from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 13; the work will remain on display through September 10.

Husband and wife artists, John Moyers and Terri Kelly Moyers, will present their newest collection of original oil paintings, showcasing a broad range of locations. Their work includes traditional, small, plein air paintings and large, figurative works, often with expressive and inventive narratives that capture the imagination. John, especially, invites a sense of history to his Native American themes, and Terri achieves insightful sensitivity through her expression of character. The couple's shared love of the Southwest remains a focus of their work, and their art reflects a dedication to their established rhythms in contemporary painting.
