Venice, CA — On Thursday, October 12, The G2 Gallery will present The Gottlieb Native Garden: A Closer Look, a photography exhibit showcasing the renowned Gottlieb Native Garden in Beverly Hills, usually only on observation during the annual Theodore Payne Native Plant Garden Tour.

The Gottlieb Native Garden: A Closer Look takes a deeper survey of the backyard garden of G2 Gallery owners Susan and Dan Gottlieb. A Xerces Society-designated Pollinator Habitat and an official National Wildlife Federation Certified Backyard Wildlife Habitat, the Gottlieb Native Garden is home to a stunning array of wildlife not typically found in a metropolitan city.

The Gottlieb Native Garden is a fully-mature garden filled with plants native to Southern California, attracting birds, insects, and other creatures indigenous to the area, creating a vibrant ecosystem. The species found here have been documented in numerous ways, most notably photography.

Scott Logan has been photographing the Gottlieb Native Garden for years, and his macrophotography features close-ups of insects and plants native to the Los Angeles region. Scott photographs live creatures in a studio using stacking techniques to keep the entire image in focus revealing remarkable details. Photographs by Dan and Susan Gottlieb center on the flora and fauna found in this urban oasis.

“Nature is all around us,” says Scott Logan. “It’s captivating to take a closer look and see how interesting these tiny things are.”

The opening reception for The Gottlieb Native Garden: A Closer Look, in conjunction with Designed Environment, a group exhibition featuring patterns in nature, with will be held Saturday, October 14 from 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Admission is $10 and includes complimentary wine, hors d’oeuvres and valet in front of the gallery. All proceeds from admissions and art sales will be donated to the California Native Plant Society and Theodore Payne Foundation. Please RSVP to G2reception.Eventbrite.com.
