A wilderness in paint

Palo Alto artist exhibits selected works

Wax, oil, acrylics and pastels; paper, canvas and wood panels: Palo Alto artist Naomi Mindelzun doesn't limit herself to a single medium. What's consistent about her work is the theme of wilderness and an evident concern with the natural world.

On Saturday, Oct. 3, 5-8 p.m., Los Altos' Gallery 9 at 143 Main St. will hold a reception for "Selected Works," a new show of Mindelzun's paintings. "Selected Works" is on exhibit now through Oct. 31.

Though inspired by nature, many of these paintings verge on the abstract, subtly evoking ponds and canyons, thick forests and distant landscapes in a palette of black and white, earthy yellows and watery blues. In other works, rocks, birds, flowers and even human figures emerge from lush backgrounds.

The reception and show are both free to the public. For more information about the show, go to gallery9losaltos.com or call 650-941-7969. To learn more about the artist, go to naomimindelzun.com or email naomimindelzun@gmail.com.

We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?
