LOS ALTOS, CA (February 4, 2020) – Los Altos History Museum will hold an open house for the community to meet the artists whose work is featured in the exhibition, “Gallery 9: Celebrating Art in Los Altos,” on Thursday, Feb 13 from 6-8pm.
“This is a chance for visitors to find out about the artists behind the canvas,” said Exhibition Curator Dr. Amy Ellison. “What is their process, where did they get their inspiration, how did each piece of art come to be? Attendees can browse the exhibition, speak to each artist, and enjoy wine and cheese.”
Gallery 9, a fine art gallery located on Main Street in Los Altos, is celebrating its 50th anniversary with this exhibition, on display at the Los Altos History Museum through March 8. The cooperative was formed by a group of nine women in 1970 and is now considered the oldest cooperative art gallery in Los Altos.
Los Altos History Museum began in 1977 with the opening of the J. Gilbert Smith House historic farmhouse, built in 1905. In 2001, the Los Altos History Museum opened its modern building next door, which houses the Museum’s collections, permanent and changing exhibits, store and administrative offices. The Museum and its grounds are available for rent during evenings and weekends. Its collections are owned by the City of Los Altos and are managed by an independent nonprofit organization, whose staff and volunteers are responsible for all programs and operations.
The Museum and J. Gilbert Smith House are open Thursday through Sunday, from noon-4pm. Admission is free. The gardens, outdoor agricultural exhibits and picnic area are accessible beyond Museum hours.
