Venice, CA – Susan and Dan Gottlieb founded The G2 Gallery in 2008 to engage the hearts and minds of local Angelenos and to bring attention to critical environmental issues. They did this by showcasing the work of both celebrated and emerging nature and wildlife photographers, and by creating a space for artists and activists to converge.

On the eve of their 10th anniversary, the Gottliebs are now looking to the future, inspired by the challenge to reach an even larger and more expansive audience.

Today, they announce their decision to close the physical location of The G2 Gallery in Venice, California in order to put their energies into creating an innovative, media-rich online platform that will expand their vision and bring together their many passions and projects.

The new platform will address many difficult environmental issues, foster collaboration among public, private and academic institutions, and further the Gottliebs’ many philanthropic endeavors.

The doors will close on May 20, 2017.
