Photographer José Quezada is displaying his work at the Arcata Marsh Interpretive Center in September and October. His show, titled “Just Off the Bay,” features images that are all less than a 10-minute bike ride from particular parts of Humboldt Bay.

“I am inspired by the early morning and evening light of the dunes, marshlands, sloughs, estuaries, sands and pastures surrounding Humboldt Bay,” said Quezada, who is a freelance photojournalist for the Times-Standard and owns and operates two freelance photography websites, HumLook and HumSport.

“Location, lighting and luck are the only guidance I rely on for capturing life and landscape around the bay. I have lived and worked in Humboldt County for 48 years,” he said.

Shows featuring local art and photography are sponsored by Friends of the Arcata Marsh. The Interpretive Center is located at 569 South G Street in Arcata and is open to the public Tuesday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Monday between 1 and 5 p.m. For more information, call 707-826-2359.
