Enid Foster: Sausalito's Greatest Forgotten Artist

Sausalito Library Friday Evening Program
Enid Foster: Sausalito's Greatest Forgotten Artist
Friday, March 29
7:30 p.m. inside the Library

In 1958, new Sausalito residents Allan and Carol Hayes met Enid Foster when they bought one of her paintings. As their friendship developed, Enid introduced Allan and Carol to the thriving Sausalito art colony that revolved around her. Enid had been an internationally respected artist before 1920, but the critics, curators, and gallery owners of the 1960s saw her only as the town character, an amusing eccentric who made irrelevant art. Today, that "irrelevant art" dazzles us with its vitality, freshness, and originality. Allan's talk will be followed by a reception for a show of selected works by Enid Foster in the exhibit room of the Sausalito Historical Society.
