Casual encounters with art

I’ve heard a specious little rumor that sometimes the appreciation of art is perceived by some as presumptuous or pretentious.  In an effort to disabuse potential patrons of this baseless belief, The G2 Gallery launched a series of what we are fond of calling “casual encounters with art.”  These friendly interactions, called Artist Talks, allow […]

Jaw-dropping beautiful…

This is how one G2 Gallery patron responded to her first sighting of Cheyne Walls’ Yosemite Valley, an Ansel Adams-esque black and white photograph. She is not alone. Not only did she and another hundred or so people attending The G2 Gallery Reception for Cheyne Walls’ Miles from Los Angeles on August 12th find the […]

A New Wilderness

The G2 Gallery is delighted to present Jennifer MaHarry’s collection “New Wilderness”.  This bold new approach to capturing images of wild animals with secreted messages concerning oil pipelines, logging, cattle ranching, pesticide sprays and other man-made threats to North America’s wildlife will challenge your complacency and inspire you to protect these beautiful animals. In a […]

Transition

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “transition” as a passage from one state, stage, subject, or place to another. Transition is a common occurrence for patrons of The G2 Gallery. Every eight weeks or so, G2 bids adieu to one exhibit as we transition into another; proving “every exit is but an entrance to somewhere else.” Transitions to […]

The G2 Gallery supports the Wildlife Conservation Network’s Elephant Crisis Fund

When it comes to supporting art and the environment, The G2 Gallery occupies a unique niche in Los Angeles.  One-hundred percent of the proceeds raised by the gallery through the sale of art, certain merchandise, event tickets and more is donated to 501c3 animal welfare and environmental charities.  A different charity is selected for each […]

Your home could use a little wildlife…

I want to share the most delightful letter I just received from the proud owners of Lion Under Full Moon; one of three prints – two are still available.  These limited edition prints are destined to become collectors’ items. To Whom It May Concern: We encourage anyone considering one of Roberto’s fine-art pieces to honor […]

Beautiful inside and out…

What do a Shasta Crayfish, Bumblebees, a Scrub Jay and the beloved Hollywood mountain lion named P22 have in common?  Two things: the amazing artist Louis Masai and The G2 Gallery.   Renderings of these precious and endangered creatures can all be found on the outside walls of The G2 Gallery in Venice CA.  They […]

How to apply for An Artist-In-Residence Grant: Samy’s Photo School comes to The G2 Gallery

Photographers have been creating art in national parks since the late 19th century – but did you know the National Park Service offers photographers the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while residing within our nation’s most inspiring landscapes? In fact, the National Park Service offers Artist-in-Residence (AIR) programs in over 50 national parks – and […]

On the Shoulders of Giants

“If I have seen further than others, it was by standing upon the shoulders of giants,” explained Sir Isaac Newton some 341 years ago.  Thanks to Galileo’s telescope, and Newton’s own invention of calculus, our understanding of mankind’s place in the universe was forever transformed. This Friday evening, The G2 Gallery will host a modern-day […]

Call for Submissions: Designed Environment

Philosopher Isaiah Berlin once proclaimed that “to understand is to perceive patterns”. He reminds us that to “understand” means to figure out (or see) how things fit together. We extract meaning from chaos by identifying patterns. We look to find what famed prognosticator Nate Silver calls, “the signal in the noise.” It has always been human […]
