Woodside: a coop with a view

Woodside artist Ami Jaqua has painted 13 scenes of chickens in recognition of the widespread interest in backyard chickens. The oil paintings are on exhibit at the Woodside Library through Aug. 31,

The library, located at 3140 Woodside Road, is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. except on Fridays and Saturdays, when it closes at 5 p.m.

A Woodside Library exhibit by Ms. Jaqua in the summer of 2009 consisted of 20 paintings of clotheslines. That exhibit later went to Palo Alto and is now headed to Los Altos, Ms. Jaqua said. She has hopes that the series will travel up and down the state.

The idea in both exhibits, Ms. Jaqua said, is to encourage viewers to consider the green advantages, whether of hanging your clothes out to dry or gathering your own eggs.
