Fall arts preview: an exuberance of culture

Fall arts preview shows off what's new and notable this season

Though the weather's not exactly what you'd call "crisp" yet, a few trees are tentatively going scarlet. And rain or shine, local arts groups are all set for autumn.

Now is the time when theaters, concert halls, cafes and galleries shake off any late-August snoozes and open their doors to a new arts season. Is that a pair of violas tuning up, a curator straightening a painting, an actor rehearsing an explosive scene from "God of Carnage"?

As always, our fall arts preview gives you a taste of what's new and notable on the Midpeninsula this season. This time around, that includes: contemporary photographer Carrie Mae Weems documenting the African-American experience, a pair of twin bluegrass musicians in concert and appearances by the French choreographer Jerome Bel. The Israeli actor Topol will also drop by Palo Alto during a film-festival screening of his classic movie musical "Fiddler on the Roof." L'chaim!

Just saw your French Film Club from 2012.
Are you still showing French Films?
Thank you,
