Tomorrow's events (Oct. 18)

 

• Art: 'Space and Form'

A new exhibition of sculptures by Pola Harrel and paintings by Gertie Mellon opens tomorrow (Oct. 18) at 11 a.m. at Gallery House, 320 California Ave., Palo Alto, and runs through Nov. 13. Harrel's work is influenced by the pre-Columbian art of Peru, while Mellon says her canvases often reflect "the encroachment of city into the landscape." Admission is free. The gallery, located behind the Printers Cafe, is open Tuesdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday from 11 to 8, and Sundays from 11 to 3. Go to galleryhouse2.com.

• Authors: 'About Face'

Tomorrow (Oct. 18) at 7 p.m., three of the writers whose words are in "About Face: Military Resisters Turn Against War" will give an author talk at Kepler's bookstore. Buff Whitman-Bradley,

Cynthia Whitman-Bradley and Michael Thurman will speak at 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park. The book focuses on people who volunteered to serve in the U.S. military and then refused to fight in "unjust wars." Audience members must buy the event book or a $10 gift card to admit two; bookstore members get in free. Go to keplers.com.
