"From above, the rippled fog layer laps against the shores of the foothills like a voluminous cotton ocean." – Eric Cheng
Located next to the Mercantile, the Art Gallery showcases engaging works, including photography, painting, sculpture and mixed media, by talented local artists. Exhibits change seasonally and offer fresh perspectives, continuing the rich, century-old legacy of Sausalito as an artists' community.
Bryant Austin is an acclaimed portrait photographer – of whales. His full-body composite photos, often life-sized, capture a view of whales most humans never see. Bryant enters the whales' ocean habitat and waits patiently for an encounter with a curious or sociable whale to swim within four to six feet. Then, the intimate portrait session begins, focusing on the whales' true colors, tonal range and intricate detail. Austin takes up to 300 images in five-foot, vertical sections; from these, he selects 15-20 photos to create a composite, life-sized studio portrait.
