PrintMaker’s ‘Discoveries’ Exhibit

With nature as its theme, printmaker Susan Trubow’s show runs at 1870 Art Center in Belmont through Sunday.

The artist has ventured into large-format printing, depicting spacious views in strong textural qualities, while subtle color tones portray seasonal differences in the images.

Trubow approaches serigraph like solving a puzzle. Before proceeding, she works out the subject matter and format. Discoveries begin after the first pull of ink through the stencil and at each pull thereafter.

The gallery is at 1870 Ralston Ave. Hours are Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m. Call (650) 595-9679 or visit www.1870artcenter.com.

Luminous Paintings at Caldwell

Local luminary Ruth von Jahnke Waters presents “Between Dimensions,” a dozen large paintings showing through Feb. 29.

“These paintings bow out from the wall, and the artworks are neither two-dimensional nor fully three-dimensional,” Waters said.

The show is at the Caldwell Gallery at 400 County Center, Redwood City. Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Call (650) 591-2101 or visit www.peninsulaartscouncil.org.

Print Show of Trees

“Roots,” a show featuring prints of the everlasting magnificence of trees by Menlo Park artist Marianne Schlumberger, is at the Main Gallery in Redwood City from Feb. 13 to March 6.

“As I worked on these prints, I felt connected to the beauty and fragility of the trees we take for granted,” Schlumberger said. “We need both the movement and excitement of the future, but grounded in the roots of the past as symbolized by trees.”

A reception for the artist will be held Feb. 17 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the gallery, which is located at 1018 Main St. Hours are 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Call (650) 701-1018 or visit www.themaingallery.org.
