■ Art: 'Luminaries'

Summer stays in the French and Italian countrysides inspired a new two-artist exhibition at the Bryant Street Gallery at 532 Bryant St. in Palo Alto. Aondrea Maynard shows oil paintings exploring "the emotionally evocative power of color and light," and Rebecca Szeto shows sculptures examining everyday objects, through Jan. 31. The gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (and Thursdays until 7 p.m.). For more information, call 650-321-8155 or go to bryantstreet.com.

■ Exhibit: 'Politics, Massacre, Morality'

A touring historic exhibit looks at the Katyn Forest Massacre of Polish prisoners during World War II. The exhibit is currently at the Hoover Institution Library and Archives at Stanford University through Jan. 29 (except when the university is shut down for the holidays between Dec. 18 and Jan. 2). It is produced by Poland's Council for the Protection of the Memory of Struggle and Martyrdom and includes photos, a documentary film and commentary. The exhibit is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Go to hoover.org.
