In Woodside: chickens on display

In a new series of environmentally themed oil paintings at the Woodside library, artist Ami Jaqua depicts 13 scenes in recognition of the widespread interest in backyard chickens.

The paintings by the Woodside artist will be on display through August.

In the summer of 2009, Ms. Jaqua exhibited at the library 20 of her paintings of clotheslines.

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

The clothesline exhibit later traveled to Palo Alto and is now headed to Los Altos, Ms. Jaqua said. She has hopes the series will travel up and down the state.

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