In a new series of environmentally themed oil paintings going up on the walls of the Woodside library, Woodside artist Ami Jaqua has painted 13 scenes of chickens in recognition of the widespread interest in backyard chickens.
The exhibit will be up from July 1 to Aug. 31. Ms. Jaqua said she has not planned a reception.
An exhibit by Ms. Jaqua from the summer of 2009 consisted of 20 paintings of clotheslines in the library. 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.
The library is located at 3140 Woodside Road. The library opens Monday through Saturday at 11 a.m. and closes at 7 p.m. except on Fridays and Saturdays, when it closes at 5 p.m. The library is closed on Sundays.
