James Blake is a landscape artist and, more tellingly, a portrait painter of trees. His wandering eye has scouted trees in Texas, California and Europe, recording the graceful spreading live oak branches in Fort Worth and the moss-covered roots of an ancient tree on the grounds of Kendal Castle, a 12th-century ruin in northern England. "Recent Paintings: James R. Blake" will open Saturday with a reception from 6 to 8 p.m. The exhibit runs through March 16.
