Art: 'Mapping Edo'
Paintings, prints and archival maps done by various artists during Japan's Edo Period are the focus of a new free exhibition at Stanford's Cantor Arts Center. Utagawa Hiroshige's "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" series is among the collections represented. The museum is at Lomita Drive and Museum Way, open Wednesday through Sunday, with the show up through Feb. 2. Go to museum.stanford.edu.
In a group exhibition called "Summer," a host of artists at Gallery 9 is exploring the warm-months theme through painting and other media (think cows, Yosemite and leisurely activities), with a concurrent show of art books also up. The gallery is at 143 Main St. in Los Altos, open Tuesday through Sunday. Go to gallery9losaltos.com.
