Join me at my photography gallery in Half Moon Bay, Saturday 12–4 pm

When I’m not working on Montara Fog I’m working on photographs. Sometimes local politics and issues are the priority, sometimes art is the priority.

I opened a photography gallery of my work in Half Moon Bay in March. I show three projects at a time–two on the walls and a third on the 50-inch UltraHD 4k screen.

New work went up this week and I’d love for my readers to stop by and see what I really do…invitation is below…

——————————–

Opening this Saturday at the Darin Boville Gallery

Please join us this Saturday at the Darin Boville Gallery for the opening event of three new photographic projects. We’ll be here from noon to 4:00 pm with light snacks and beverages.

Up on the walls (and the UltraHD screen) are three of my projects:Waves, Albuquerque, and Category 3.

Waves is a series of eighteen images of waves as you’ve never seen them before in psychedelic colors.

Albuquerque is a self portrait in shadows made at Petroglyphs National Monument in New Mexico.

Category 3 puts a new spin on landscape photography.

We have, as always, beautiful oversized postcards to share—one image from each project. The postcards are free.

There will also be special pricing on the photographs—if you’d like to own an original image we will be offering a significant discount to opening attendees. Let us know if you are interested in a specific print.

The Darin Boville Gallery is located on Route 92 in Half Moon Bay in the Spanishtown building (when you see the large dinosaur sculptures at the side of the road you are there). Our regular hours are 12:00—4:00, Thursday through Sunday.

No need to RSVP. Please feel free to forward this invitation to others.

Parks Director to discuss improvements to Moss Beach Park, Monday, June 9th at 6:30 pm

San Mateo County Parks Director Marlene Finely will be meeting with Coastside residents to discuss improvements to Moss Beach Park.

The County Board of Supervisors voted to take on the responsibility of running the park last December after the park was inadvertently sold to a Pacifica developer– the community was outraged and the County canceled the sale, preserving the parcel as a pocket park.

Monday’s meeting will take place at 6:30 at the Granada Sanitary Districts offices at  504 Avenue Alhambra  in El Granada. The meeting room is on the third floor of the building.
