A RiverArts Salon is a (virtual) place to learn something new, share ideas, explore interesting topics, see and be seen, and have fun.
Tuesdays from 5 - 5:45, on Zoom
on “Becoming Blue Tulip”
Based on her book Blue Tulip: an artistic adventure with painter Francois Joseph Kinsoen and his niece Adele, author Posey Boicourt invites you along as she rediscovers the world of a forgotten portrait painter from Bruges in her family who emigrated to Paris and quickly rose to work for Napoleon and royal courts of France and the Netherlands.
A discussion following may include the following topics:
1. A reassessment of familiar and perhaps familial “treasures”.
2. The importance of salon culture, then and now: networking
3. Collaboration: the dilemma of finding a publisher and the importance of collaboration, including sources of all kinds from and on the Eastern Shore

The Adventures of Blue Tulip Salon has been postponed until April 2022 when we can hopefully hear from Posey in person! In the meantime, check out her website and book at bluetulipproject.com. Stay tuned for more information.
