The book club is off to a great start. "The Glassblower of Murano" by Marina Fiorato was a nice title to start the year off, and it was so exciting to feature Dr. Nancy G. Heller for our featured book of the month "Why a Painting is Like a Pizza." I hope you enjoyed the pizza!

The featured book for May 2013, "Modigliani: A Life," was a great way to end the book club season. Jennifer Jankauskas provided a wonderful presentation to help bring Modigliani's impressive career to life. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer break. We will resume in the fall with "The Glassblower of Murano." by Marina Fiorato.

Join us on March 6th for a conversation with Susan Vreeland, author of "The Passion of Artemisia." It should be fun! After our discussion with the author, Tim will provide a presentation of paintings addressed in the book, and audio and video clips that address topics related to Artemisia's life and work.
Susan Vreeland provides a lot of resources on her website. There is also a nice review "Artemisia: Her Passion Was Painting Above All Else," by Roderick Conway Morris. Mary Garrard has been cited most often as a source for Artemisia's life and work.
