Alameda Library Shares Art Talk, Exhibits

From 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. tonight (Wednesday, June 22), the Alameda Free Library will present a talk on artist Pablo Picasso. The discussion will be led by Marsha Holm, a docent at the de Young Museum of San Francisco.

The program coincides with the San Francisco museum’s exhibit that includes more than 100 works by the master and that were loaned to the institution by the Musee National Picasso in Paris. The exhibit opened June 11 and runs through October 9.

Today’s talk is sponsored by the Friends of the Alameda Free Library.

Currently, the main library has two exhibits on display. One is a series of paintings by local artist Jan Toepfer, a long-time Alameda resident who started painting seriously in 1994.

The Oakland Art Association is also showing works from its juried exhibit in town through June 25.
