The Adobe Art Gallery is proud to present Contemplations. The exhibit features 

Lynne Prather’s Rilke Spiral – floating, walkthrough poem installation
Philip Long’s surreal leather mosaics
Don Drake and Cindy Lee’s unique works expand and elevate “book arts”.  Includes Don’s (of DreamingMind bindery in Castro Valley) a very elegant 5-word story in jacob’s ladder format; and Cindy’s “UseLess” journals.. and more.
Intriguing, delightful, fun and insightful. Much to contemplate from these local artists.
