• Art: Marguerite Fletcher
Palo Alto painter Marguerite Fletcher's spiritual approach to art is reflected in two series of oil paintings she currently has on exhibit at Cafe Borrone at 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park. The "Reveille" and "Five Luminous Mysteries" series of paintings -- all ethereal, some inspired by the teachings of Buddha -- can be viewed during cafe opening hours through Aug. 22.
