The program will highlight artist Marlane Wurzbach’s vibrant acrylics of historic local buildings including The Oaks, Ca’ d’Zan, Dr. Joseph Halton’s house, and many others both past and present. Dr. Frank Cassell, local historian, author, and Chairman of Sarasota County’s Centennial Steering Committee will provide historical context and anecdotes to accompany Ms. Wurzbach’s work.
