The work of Naomi Mindelzun is on display locally during the month of October.

The local arts scene abounds with exhibitions in a variety of media. Following are a few that run through October or early November.

Gallery 9

Naomi Mindelzun is set to exhibit her recent paintings at Gallery 9 Tuesday through Oct. 27.

A reception for the artist is scheduled 5-8 p.m. Oct. 5 at the gallery.

“The work consists of monotypes, acrylics and oil with cold wax pieces,” Mindelzun said. “All of the work is from my imagination, evolving from the materials that I use.”

Mindelzun said her images are abstract, but they are inspired by the natural world. She explores forms both real and imagined, seeking in their architecture the mysteries of the seen world.

The artist said she is “deeply concerned about the environment.” She plans to donate proceeds from the show to Earthjustice, a nonprofit group that litigates environmental issues.

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.

Viewpoints Gallery

The work of Caroline McClintic is scheduled for exhibition during the month of October at Viewpoints Gallery.

McClintic has been drawing, painting and creating throughout her life.

After working as a licensed California architect, she returned to her passion of painting and drawing through classes at Pacific Art League and various workshops in California and Taos, New Mexico.

“I love the enigmatic nature and beauty of watercolor,” she said. “I am drawn to unique lighting, texture and to scenes that tell a story.”

Viewpoints Gallery is located at 315 State St., Los Altos. Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sundays.

The work of Mauricio Rod- riguez, which welds the visual and musical arts, is on display through Nov. 10 at Mohr Gallery on the campus of the Community School of Music and Arts in Mountain View.

“Meaning the Score: A Visual Exhibition of Music” is an exhibition of graphic music scores. Rodriguez explores the dynamic relationship between music and its multiple forms of notation. The work inspires the possibility of “listening” to sound and music by appreciating their visual representations, he said.

Rodriguez calls the works in his exhibition “Tyscores”: hand-typed engravings produced on an old, heavy-duty music typewriter. Music typewriters never had a widespread use after lithographic music printing, he said, so his works also aim to revive an engraving practice virtually unknown in the world of music notation software.

CSMA’s Mohr Gallery is located at 230 San Antonio Circle, Mountain View. Hours are 9 a.m. through 7 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays.
