DUNGENESS CRAB SEASON 2018 - 2019

The fishery is scheduled to reopen on November 3, 2018. A few things you need to know if you’re going to get crabby on your own:

If crabbing from a public pier, you don’t need a sport fishing license to set a trap or net (read all about it in the state’s Ocean Sport Fishing Regulations).You can keep up to 10 Dungeness crabs per day during the season, but they must measure a minimum of 5-3/4 inches across the shell.The best time to catch is early in the morning or an hour or so before sunset.

A popular on-shore crabbing spot: the breakwater jetty off Doran Beach Regional Park. Another good place to try: the Marina Jetty at Bodega Bay’s Spud Point Marina (on the marina’s south end).

"Marine Transformations" featuring Brandy Gale and DeborahThrelkel

Gualala Arts Center presents a new exhibit for October in the Dolphin Gallery. The exhibit runs Oct. 7 through Nov. 11. "Marine Transformations" features the works of Brandy Gale and Deborah Threlkel.

 

 Brandy Gale

Brandy Gale

Brandy Gale is a plein-air artist and photographer whose subject matter focuses on intertidal subjects around the Pacific Rim, she feels at home on the Mendonoma coast. Gale describes herself as a “color fanatic,” a natural extension of her full-spectrum synaesthesia, a crossed-senses experience where sunsets may smell like vanilla, colors have sounds or the letter “A” is always yellow. She expresses these personal synesthetic experiences through her paintings and will often carry a large number of paint tubes and handmade brushes so her palette and brushstrokes capture what she senses.

 Deborah Threlkel "The Abalone Queen"

Deborah Threlkel "The Abalone Queen"

Deborah Threlkel, known as “The Abalone Queen,” is this month’s three-dimensional artist. Threlkel actually works with a much wider variety of materials than just abalone to create her original pieces, all of which share one common trait — they are produced from materials she finds. An inveterate collector, Threlkel is constantly discovering materials on her hikes and explorations. Her conceptualization with these treasures is what distinguishes her from other artists.

Dophin Gallery
