About this blog: I grew up in Menlo Park and have long been involved with both local journalism and local theater. After starting my career as an editorial intern with The Almanac, I was a staff reporter for the Almanac and the San Mateo County Times, covering local government, cops, health/science and many other beats. In 2005 I made the move to the arts desk at the Palo Alto Weekly. A&E is close to my heart because of my experience in the performing arts. I've been acting and singing in Bay Area theater productions for years, and have played everything from a sassy French boy to a Texas cheerleader. In Ad Libs, I blog about the exhibitions I see, the artists I meet and the intriguing new projects and trends I see in the arts world. (Hide)

Sorry to hear that South Bay painter Terri Hill is leaving Viewpoints Gallery in Los Altos, where she's been showing her watercolors for several years. In this uber-cycling-friendly area, she's known for her cheerful, color-popping bike paintings where gears and spokes are often the stars. We put her "Parked in Palo Alto" on the Weekly's cover a few years back.
I hear that Terri has been battling an illness, and we wish her well. This month, she and another Terri (Ford, who is also leaving the gallery) are having a farewell exhibit at Viewpoints. Watercolors and pastels, scenes of rocks and beaches, bikes and bridges.
