Open your ‘Mindscapes’ at Valley Art Gallery. Valley Art Gallery’s “Mindscapes” exhibit, featuring the distinctive textured abstract paintings of Lu Buery, which runs through March 1. Buery layers paints, sand and gesso — a plaster-of-Paris-like blended paint — along with intertwining metallic forms with random streaks and shapes, to portray textures and patinas of bark, chipped paint, rusted iron and other surfaces. In addition to “Mindscapes” will be works from more than 100 other Bay Area artists on the gallery’s 30 rolling walls.

Dorrance, 35, grew up in a house where movement and dance and extraordinary achievement were omnipresent. Her mother M’Liss Gary Dorrance was a long-time ballet dancer who founded and directed the Ballet School of Chapel Hill. Her father, Anson Dorrance, led the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team to the World Cup in 1991 (and currently coaches the University of North Carolina’s women’s soccer team). Drawn to tap at an early age, Dorrance came under the wing of Gene Medler, a tap teacher with connections to the tradition’s pantheon of stars.

Lake View Terrace and Newbury Park. About the unit: Founded in 1957, the focus of the Blue Shadows Mounted Drill Team is to teach horseback riding, mounted drill, leadership, responsibility and teamwork to younger riders in the group. Many who have grown up in the organization will age out at 18, enroll in college, enter professions such as doctors and nurses, judges, veterinarians and law enforcement — and return later to mentor future Blue Shadows, fulfilling the motto “Once a Shadow, always a Shadow.”.
