ABOUT THE EXHIBIT

This exhibit consists exclusively of Witmer's underwater photographs, including marine life from both local cool water kelp forests and warm water coral habitats. The "creatures" featured in Witmer's photography include California's state marine fish, the Garibaldi. The coastal waters of California and the Caribbean are host to a variety of colorful residents. Witmer artfully depicts her subjects, including sea and tube anemones, crustaceans, sea slugs, sea horses, and fishes, some of which Witmer says have "faces only a mother could love."

To encourage visitors to learn more about the sometimes weird and always wonderful creatures of the local coral and kelp forests depicted in Witmer's photography, books from the library's collection are on hand to peruse. If you are so-inclined, you can even take them to the Circulation Desk to check out.
