The widow of actor-comedian Robin Williams, Schneider Williams will speak in part on Lewy-body dementia, which afflicted her late husband; MarinScapes is hosted by Buckelew Programs, which offers services and support for those dealing with mental-health or addiction issues.

Tiburon's Susan Schneider Williams will be
featured artist, speaker at MarinScapes

When Susan Schneider Williams was 9 years old, a next-door neighbor in Lucas Valley invited the girl and her sister over for some art lessons.

That was Schneider Williams' introduction to oil painting, and she was hooked.

"It was like this light bulb went on inside of me," she says. "That could have been the very first time I noticed that time disappeared."

Now 59 years old, the Paradise Cay resident has been an artist for decades, painting mostly landscapes. But she still finds it easy to get lost in her work.

"It's truly my own form, my very personal and safe space for expression," she says.

Schneider Williams will be the featured artist and guest speaker at the Buckelew Programs' 29th annual MarinScapes, a fine-art exhibit and sale set for June 22-25 at Escalle Winery, 771 Magnolia Ave., Larkspur.

The show features more than 30 artists and photographers whose works capture Marin County landscapes. In addition to Schneider Williams, Tiburon's Judith Klausenstock and Suzanne Siminger will have pieces in the show.

Ridge developer appears to budge on planned locations for water tower, 43 homes

_______

Seeking to overcome the biggest obstacle to county approval of its proposed 43-lot subdivision on the Tiburon Ridge — the ability to generate enough water pressure to fight a fire — the Martha Co. has filed new plans that propose to push some houses lower down the ridge.

Pushing the homes farther below a proposed 180,000-gallon water tank would allow gravity to better take hold and create higher firefighting water pressure on the 110-acre property in unincorporated Tiburon, which sits above the Old St. Hilary's Open Space Preserve.

Residents get look at new plans for former seminary

By EMILY LAVIN

_______

A revamped proposal to develop the former seminary site in Strawberry — one that includes market-rate housing, a continuing-care retirement community and a school that offers half of its instruction online — drew mixed reviews at a June 17 community open house, where several of the site's neighbors said they're still wary the plan will draw too much traffic to the area.

The open house, held at the former site of the Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary at 201 Seminary Drive, was hosted by North Coast Land Holdings, which owns the property. It was the first time the developer has publicly shared a revised proposal since the Branson School dropped its plans to relocate as part of the development.

"We think it's a great next iteration of what we hope to achieve on the site," said Charles Goodyear, spokesman for North Coast, of the plans.
