Esther Baran Artwork is announcing a grand opening art show from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 5, at Allied Arts Guild, 75 Arbor Road in Menlo Park.

Watercolors, color etchings, cards, calendars and jewelry will be for sale in a rustic barn on the Allied Arts Guild grounds.

Esther Baran Artwork is located next to the woodshop at the end of the Rose Allee. Follow the signs for the Barn and you will see the gallery's space to the left of it, with a sign reading, "Esther Baran Artwork."

Ms. Baran said she was raised in Menlo Park and attended Encinal School and Menlo-Atherton High School.

"I had been doing etchings for many years and more recently have turned to watercolors and oils," she said in an email. "As an etcher, I illustrated textbooks, focusing mainly on folk tales. I have always been interested in folk tales of diverse cultures, and have found them to be an inspiration in my art work. I enjoy doing the research into the unique characteristics and history of each tale that I come upon.

"My second interest has been painting fruit and vegetable still lifes."

Parking is available in one of two Allied Arts Guild lots or on Arbor Road. Please do not park on the residential side of Arbor Road.
