Located next to the Mercantile, the Art Gallery showcases engaging photography by talented local artists. Exhibits change seasonally and offer fresh perspectives, continuing the rich, century-old legacy of Sausalito as an artists' community.
New exhibits in the Art Gallery are presented quarterly. Each show reflects one of the four themes that comprise the Cavallo Point experience: Nature, Nurture, Culture, Adventure.
A true San Francisco native, Bob Kranzke was always intrigued by the vast amount of beauty the city offers all year round. Growing up in the backdrop of Golden Gate Park, Ocean Beach, and the Presidio of San Francisco sparked his interest in photography and inspired him to pick up his first camera in early 1970. Self-taught, he began his love of photography developing and printing black and white in his own darkroom. 1988, Bob moved to Marin County, CA experiencing a newfound passion for photographing wildlife, landscapes, and seascapes. His work now include his travels in Africa, Europe and the United States.
Larry Nienkark is a fine art photographer who captures anything that catches his eye, but mostly landscapes and people. Born in San Francisco and raised in Marin Country, he resides in San Anselmo. After taking photography and filmmaking courses in high school, he pursued other careers. Then, years later, he returned to the College of Marin and rediscovered photography. Now, over 10 years later, he has received numerous awards for his work. An opportunist photographer influenced by landscapes’ environmental conditions, Larry likes to wander around Marin County, his long-time home, and capture fleeting moments.
Born in Marin, Heather has been exploring Marin’s landscapes all her life. Currently she is intrigued with reflections and fog, which she features in her photographs at every opportunity. She is drawn to the transformative atmospheric element and obscurity that fog introduces as well as the beautiful blur and allure of reflections. Heather hopes to introduce an emotive component to her work, thereby promoting a lingering effect that allows for the interplay of personal associations. This reflective pause invites the viewer to become an integral part of the creative process. Heather received the 2016 Marin County Fair “Photography Best of Show” award.
