You’ll have a chance – during the Feb 27th FHA Annual Meeting festivities – to see Elena Sheehan’s photographs on display at the Bay Model. The exhibit closes March 5th. Titled Traces, Sheehan’s works are elegant studies in the abstract beauty of water and rocks. “Some traces pass quickly. Others linger, change, disappear.” 

Sheehan could just as easily be describing the often tenuous nature of making one’s home out on Richardson’s Bay. No less colorful, or beautifully detailed, are Bente Stachowske’s photographs chronicling life on the water. The exhibition ‘Living on the Anchor – Sausalito’s Anchor Outs’ is on view at the Sausalito Library until the 27th of March.

Bente’s photos afford us an extraordinarily intimate glimpse of a life to which we would otherwise not be privy, even more so in light of current developments on Richardson’s Bay. Prime viewing time is after dark (less competition from the ambient light). Sausalito Library is open weekdays Monday through Thursday until 9 p.m.
