Monthly Art Exhibit  -  March -  Allan Jensen
Allan Jensen has been a member of the Faculty Club since the late 1970’s as well as a member of the Faculty Club Monks Chorus since 1987. His art transcends singing and this exhibit focuses on Mr. Jensen’s avocation as a photographer.Mr. Jensen’s photographs include samples of nature and wildlife images currently featured on a permanent album at the andFacebook pages entitled “Wildlife on the Richmond Bay Trail”. This is his third exhibit at the faculty club and features a series of unique photos of the rare and endangered/protected California Clapper Rail: His beautiful and unique avian, flora, and landscape photos, now include spectacular sun-rise and sunset images, all of which have been featured in local and regional publications for many years. His work highlights the variety of what nature provides by way of simple walks around parks or preserves here in the bay area. Subjects of avian photographs include raptors, marsh birds and shorebirds. His many photos of birds “wading” with mirrored in water reflections caused a colleague to name them “your Narcissus collection”. "Another fan gave me the best compliment I could have expected”, she asked, “these are beautiful, but, how do you get the birds to pose like that!” I had to bite my tongue to not chuckle, and replied, “With lots of patience, thank you”:-).Mr. Jensen continues to capture the return of the long absent Ospreys to the bay area whose numbers are now increasing.
