 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 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.

The Brothers Le Nain: Painters of 17th Century France
Tuesday, October 18
2:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Join FAMSF docent Rita Dunlay in an exploration of the mysterious Le Nain brothers – Antoine, Louis, and Mathieu – celebrated painters in Paris in the early 17th century. Little is known of their lives; unmarried and childless, they lived and worked together, producing some of the most arresting paintings of their time. This Legion of Honor exhibit, which runs October 8, 2016 to January 29, 2017, features over 50 of their works, from tender religious paintings to enigmatic scenes of peasant life. The international art magazine Apollo recently identified it as the “most important and original Old Masters exhibition in the US in 2016.”

Danny Lyon: Message to the Future
Tuesday, November 15
2:00 p.m. in the Council Chambers

Join FAMSF docent Kathryn Zupsic in a lively discussion of photographer and social historian, Danny Lyon. Lyon may appear to be a photojournalist, but he is not. While photojournalists strive to be objective, Lyon has always become immersed in the lives of his subjects, from ‘60s civil rights protestors, to motorcycle gang members and Texas prison inmates. He lives their lifestyles, becoming one of them. Lyons’ photographic records show us our history with joy and a touch of sadness. This de Young exhibit, which  runs November 5, 2016 to March 12, 2017, is organized by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco in collaboration with the Whitney Museum in New York and the full support of the artist.
