Woodside artist and residential architect Jim Caldwell will give a presentation entitled, "Portrait of an Artist ... Looking Back," at 7 p.m. Friday, May 2, in Woodside.
Sponsored by the Woodside Arts & Culture Committee, the free First Friday event will be held at Independence Hall at 2955 Woodside Road. Light refreshments will be served.
Mr. Caldwell, who teaches painting in the Stanford Continuing Studies program, describes his talk as "a personal look at my life as an artist over the past 50 years."
His works, ranging from drawings to watercolor and oil paintings, are featured in more than 350 private collections around the world, and in two coffee-table sized books he published: "The Golden Coast, From Big Sur to the Russian River" and "The Golden Coast, Landscapes at the Edge of the Continent."
