Woodside artist Jim Caldwell's exhibition of California landscape painting, titled "Reaching for the Sky," will be on view at Art Ventures Gallery Aug. 6 through Sept. 15, at 888 Santa Cruz Ave., Menlo Park.

Caldwell's work "has the unique capability of capturing the feeling of the California landscape. You encounter a sense of space and time in his paintings, however, his approach to landscape is that of a romantic not a realist. The tree paintings portray more than the physical characteristics, they provide a sense of solace and comfort, and strive to preserve the natural beauty," according to a press release from the gallery.
