 Uncle Yanco

Documentary Film Series Matinee
Short Films about Jean Varda
Tuesday, July 12
3:00 p.m. in the Edgewater Room
Co-sponsored by Sausalito Village

Join us for a reprise of films shown as part of the Library's documentary film series last winter. This summer matinee screening consists of three shorts that feature Jean Varda. Uncle Yanco is Greek filmmaker Agnes Varda's 1967 film about the life and ideas of her distant relative Jean Varda, who lived on the ferryboat Vallejo in Sausalito's "aquatic suburbia." We’ll be showing the beautiful 2015 remastered version released by the Criterion Collection. We’ll also show Varda’s Wake by Saul Rouda and a clip from Phil Frank’s Secret Sausalito. Saul Rouda will be present to answer questions about his film, and Betsy Stroman, author of The Art and Life of Jean Varda, will be on hand to answer questions about Varda.

Docent Talk
Ed Ruscha and the Great American West
Part II of the American West Series
Tuesday, July 19
2:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Join FAMSF docent Marsha Holm as she surveys the life and unique perspective of this American icon.  In 1956, at the age of 18, Ed Ruscha left his home in Oklahoma and drove a 1950 Ford sedan to Los Angeles, where he had been accepted to Chouinard Art Institute. His trip roughly followed the fabled Route 66 through the Southwest, which featured many of the sights—auto repair shops, billboards, and long stretches of roadway punctuated by telephone poles—that would provide him with artistic subjects for decades to come.

To coincide with the de Young exhibit: July 16–October 9, 2016
Sponsored by the Friends of the Sausalito Library

 Sittloh
Special Event
Artist Sharon Sittloh Reception and Reading from Poetry InsideWords
Friday, August 5
7:00 p.m. inside the Library

Enjoy an evening of reading from Poetry InsideWords with poet, visual artist, actress and voiceover talent Sharon Sittloh. The book was inspired by Sharon’s need to integrate language and visual ideas. In conjunction with the poetry reading, Sharon's mixed media poetry paintings will also be exhibited in the Library "living room." Sharon's artwork has been exhibited extensively in California and most recently in a solo show at the Santa Fe Public Library in New Mexico.

Sharon has a BA from Purdue University in Art History with a minor in Fine Art Painting and an MA from San Francisco State University in Theatre Arts. She says, "The spoken word from a poet reading their own work can bring meaning that people may not have ‘heard’ when reading it to themselves." Signed copies of her book will be available for sale, with proceeds going to the Sausalito Library.

 Phil

Documentary Film Series Matinee
Phil Frank's Secret Sausalito
Tuesday, August 9
3:00 p.m. in the Edgewater Room
Co-sponsored by Sausalito Village

Join us for a selection of short films that cartoonist and Sausalito historian Phil Frank originally created for a series of programs he presented at the Sausalito Woman's Club. In each of the clips from Phil Frank's Secret Sausalito, Phil takes us on an exploration of one of Sausalito's lesser known historic sites, from the bell tower at Christ Episcopal Church to a prohibition era speakeasy up the hill from Caledonia Street. Phil's co-star and longtime friend Mike Cerre will introduce the clips.
