The Art and Life of Jean Varda
Friday, June 19
7:00pm inside the Library

Join us for a look back at the life and works of artist and one-time Sausalito resident Jean Varda (1893-1971), on the occasion of the publication of Sausalito author Betsy Stroman’s new book, The Art and Life of Jean Varda. Varda was a visionary artist who lived large in Europe, then in California, before slipping through the cracks of historical memory. This special program will feature a reading by Stroman accompanied by slides, short videos, and an exhibit of Varda’s collages on the walls of the Library. Several old acquaintances of Varda will also be on hand to share their memories of Varda from his time living on the ferryboat Vallejo with philosopher Alan Watts. A preview of The Art and Life of Jean Varda (Purple Cottage Press, 2015) may be found at www.vardabook.com.

Join Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco docent Maureen O’Brien for a fascinating look at Joseph Mallord William Turner, one of the greatest British artists of the nineteenth century.

Flirting with Art: Love, Lust and the Pursuit of Happiness
Tuesday, August 11
2:00pm in the Council Chambers

Join Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco docent Marsha Holm for this spirited discussion about what drives the creative heart. If love doesn't make the world go round, then lust must! Gods and goddesses cavorted through the ancient world and mankind followed suit soon after. Artists have portrayed flirtations and seductions, coquettes and courtesans, lechers and losers, all in the name of lust, love and the pursuit of happiness.
