Reflections on Water: Marin Watershed Magic, a photographic exhibition celebrating the life and beauty of Marin County creeks, will open at the Bay Model Visitor Center in Sausalito on January 15th and run through February 23rd. The photographer, Sue Mace, the Creekwalker, captures the rippling, flowing, gushing and swirling of streams, rivulets and pools – even drops of fresh water. Not typical waterscapes seen from afar, these pictures offer a right-now visceral experience for the viewer because Creekwalker shoots from inside the creeks, primarily while exploring the stream beds on foot. Taken in East Marin creeks flowing into the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays and in West Marin creeks which emerge into the Pacific Ocean, the images immerse us in the very moment light touches moving water, leaves and sticks.
Reflections on Water: Marin Watershed Magic is sponsored by the Gallinas Watershed Council, who cordially invites water, art and photography enthusiasts to a gala reception at the Bay Model on Saturday, January 26th, 12:30 – 3:00 p.m. At 2:00 p.m., hydrologist Rachel Kamman will host a half-hour dialogue, “visioning goals for the future of our local watersheds,” with community watershed leaders.
