Fifty Years of Fine Art in Los Altos
Gallery 9 was founded in Menlo Park in 1970, but three years later, found its home in Los Altos. That appears to have been quite a good move, as the art cooperative is now celebrating 50 years in Los Altos with "Fifty Years of Fine Art in Los Altos," an all members' show, kicking off with a reception on June 2. Named for the number of its founding members — nine — the gallery now boasts a membership of more than triple that figure, with about 30 artists who work in a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, jewelry, photography, ceramics and weaving. Some of Gallery 9's earliest members still belong to the gallery and show their work.
Reception takes place June 2, 5-8 p.m. at Gallery 9, 143 Main St., Los Altos. The all-members' show runs through June 25. gallery9losaltos.com.
