Today's events (April 8)

 

■ Art: 'Sedimentals'

Bookbinder and artist Jody Alexander opens a new exhibition today (April 8) at the Community School of Music and Arts, 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View. Her 14 sculpture installations combine books with furniture, finding new homes for discarded tomes inside chairs, bookshelves and such. Alexander herself combines a degree in art history with one in library science, and teaches book arts at CSMA and Foothill College. CSMA's Mohr Gallery is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The show runs through May 31. Call 650-917-6800 or go to arts4all.org.
