Saying goodbye to SVMA
Farewell

Lia Transue, the visionary director and founding member of the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, said farewell to friends and patrons at a packed museum party Wednesday night on the eve of her retirement. Shown here with Glen Ellen artist Dennis Ziemienski, Transue oversaw the 10-year-old museum's growth into the largest art museum in the North Bay. Notable exhibits have included the works of Picasso and Goya and the current show of Gord Peteran's "Furniture Meets its Maker." Transue was serenaded by a trio of white-wigged sirens who sang, "Don't Cry for me Lia Transue," to the tune of the Evita namesake song, and her husband, Blaine, read a paean to his wife and her work. Lia Transue says she intends to "clear her head" and return to her painting.
