Impressionist slide show on tap Sunday

Library presentation will include 100 works of art

Artist Marlene Aron will offer a free slide presentation of more than 100 works of art by artists of the Impressionist Movement at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Pleasanton Public Library.

The presentation coincides with the birth of Impressionism and post-Impressionism exhibits taking place at the deYoung and Legion of Honor museums in San Francisco.

Included in the presentation will be the art of Monet, Renoir, Degas, Cezanne, Cassatt, Toulouse-Lautrec, Van Gogh and others, a part of the Bay Area celebration of the work of artists who forever changed the way art is viewed, said senior librarian Penny Johnson.

Marlene Aron is an artist, educator and published poet. She was educated in the Netherlands at the Vrije Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten and in the United States, receiving her master's of Fine Arts degree from California College of the Arts.

The program is free and open to the public with no registration required. The presentation will take place in the main meeting room of the library, 400 Old Bernal Ave. in Pleasanton. For more information, call Johnson at 931-3405.
