Gallery 9

“Rooms and Blooms,” an exhibition by Los Altos artist Jan Meyer, is on display through May 27 at Gallery 9.

Meyer is perhaps best known by downtown Los Altos visitors for her series of trompe l’oeil murals that decorate several downtown buildings.

Influenced by fauve artists – Matisse, Derain, Bonnard and Hockney – Meyer works with color, shapes and pattern. “Rooms and Blooms” – the subjects of her art – features geometrics, florals, stripes and polka dots, combined and with intense color.

Gallery 9 is located at 143 Main St., Los Altos. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays and noon to 4 p.m. Sundays.
