Robert's the creative heart, mind, and soul behind the art. For decades he's been creating things and experiences to bring out the best in people. From photography, to art installations, to interactive experiences, to even billboards.
Robert started his artistic career assisting for a professional photographer in Sausalito back in the early 1990s. This eventually led to him striking out on his own and having his own studio at the north end of town for over a decade where we served a spectrum of clients creating high-quality commercial photography.
He currently resides in Southern Marin with Onawa (the dog) who adopted him from Mexico. Both can often be found at the gallery most afternoons, on the trails amidst trees, or dreaming up the next creative reality. You can learn more about Robert and his art by visiting his personal website at robertbengtson.com.
Meaningful exchange and service to the community are at the core of the entrepreneurial spirit Christi embodies as the manager of the gallery. With a degree in teaching and experience working for non-profits, she stepped behind the curtains of locally owned businesses nearly 20 years ago. Her professional past also combines with her experience growing up in a family and community of artisans, where connecting people through meaningful art to enrich their lives has long been part of the show.
Christi shares in the vision of offering high-frequency things and experiences as a way to uplift and inspire the creative process in others. She values the sacred in all things and sees Robert's art as embodying this as compassion, intention, and gratitude navigate her way. Christi can often be found hiking on local trails or making edible art in the kitchen. She lives near the gallery in Southern Marin with her son and a talkative black cat named Miney.
