Presenter: Marek Sarba

Join us on Thursday July 14th from 7 – 8 PM for the lecture, Art of the Sea, by maritime painter, Marek Sarba. As we reach the 110th anniversary of the sinking of Titanic, Sarba will discuss his memorial painting, And the Band Played On.

About the Artist:
Born in Poland, Marek Sarba served in the Polish Navy where, in addition to his regular duties, he was the official artist of the Navy newsletter. Sarba then worked as chief electrician in the Gdansk Shipyard before heading to sea on a variety of tankers, ice breakers, bulk carriers and huge oceangoing salvage tugs — towing disabled ships back to the scrap yards in Poland. Now in the states, Sarba uses painting to reflect and memorialize personal and historical events.
