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
Books may be ordered via Posey’s website: bluetulipproject.com or, if you prefer via her email email@example.com.
