Olive Hyde welcomes Marvin Wax photography
Over seventy photographs by master Bay Area photographer/designer Marvin Wax will be presented in a retrospective at the historic Olive Hyde Art Gallery in Fremont. Wax, a resident of Palo Alto, is familiar to many as an architectural photographer and for his work in the best-selling book "Eichler Homes" (Chronicle Books, 1995). Over the years, fine art photography has become his consuming passion, and led to the prints comprising the core of this exhibit.
Central to his choice and treatment of subjects is his ability to envision a strong sense of design and beauty in the final image. This is well evidenced in the diversity of images on exhibit, covering the California desert, trees and cacti on the Stanford campus, sea shells, graffiti in a Palo Alto skateboard park, and people and places encountered during his travels to countries such as Costa Rica, Mexico, Spain, Portugal, Italy, Israel, Siberia and Bali.
These prints of exceptional range and beauty can be seen from September 1st to October 7th at the Olive Hyde Art Gallery. A reception with the artist will be held on Friday September 1st from 7 to 9 pm, and is open to the public.
The Olive Hyde Art Gallery is at 123 Washington Blvd in Fremont and is open Thursday through Sunday from noon to 5 pm. For more information, call the gallery at 510.791.4357 or visit on the web at http://www.ci.fremont.ca.us/Recreation/OliveHydeArtGallery/default.htm
