What local art have you taken in lately? What were your thoughts?

Asked in Town & Country Village. Question and interviews by Lena Pressesky.

Anson Averell

Green Street, East Palo Alto

Semi-retired machinist

"I take in the public sculpture ... but it all seems a little abstract to me. ... My idea of good art ... is you can perceive some sort of sacrifice on the part of the artist. It has to tell a real story."

Avi Shabtai

Georgia Street, Palo Alto

CEO, MultiPhy

"We're new to the area, but we did recently go to the Montalvo Arts Center in Saratoga ... and Allied Arts in Menlo Park."

Hilary Donahue

Bret Harte Street, Palo Alto

Mother

"I haven't taken in any lately ... but I do watercolor at the Palo Alto Art Center. ... I think people often overlook it. It's got a beautiful gallery that's open to the public."

Phil Maskiewicz

Glenloch Way, Emerald Hills

Banker

"In Woodside ... they have two very nice bronze horse statues right across from Robert's Market. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, they speak to the culture of the area as well."

Lucie Fleming

Escondido Road, Stanford

Undergraduate student

"We have the Cantor Arts Center, which is an amazing resource for students. ... I stayed there for two hours studying Manuel Neri's 'Carriona Figure No. 1' for my creative writing class."
