On View August 8 – October 8, 2017 | Opening Reception August 12, 6:30–9:00 PM
Venice, CA — On August 8, The G2 Gallery will present Cheyne Walls: Miles from Los Angeles. After exhibiting in multiple group shows, this will be Cheyne’s first solo show at The G2 Gallery.
Miles from Los Angeles features breathtaking panoramic shots of the western United States, from Washington to Colorado to Hawaii, and also showcases photos from Cheyne’s recently published homonymous book. The exhibit celebrates nature and beautifully captures the awe-inspiring vistas unique to the west. Over the past five years, Cheyne traveled in all weather conditions, from pounding rain to fresh snowfall, to shoot these destinations in all their splendor.
Cheyne was recently awarded the International Memorial Maria Luisa Photography Award, one of the most prestigious photography awards. He received first place in the mountain landscape category for “Yosemite Valley,” a black-and-white Ansel Adams-esque photograph that will be on view in this exhibit.
“What stands out about Cheyne’s photography is his use of long-exposure,” says Curator Monika Basse. “The photos are dynamic and alive, becoming a window into the world Cheyne espied and expertly framed. You can sense his enthusiasm for the outdoors in each image.”
“Many of these places are an easy trip from Los Angeles,” says Cheyne Walls. “We have some of the most diverse landscapes within a relatively short distance. From beaches to mountains to deserts, there is so much to explore. The best reward for me is if my photography inspires someone to head outside and discover nature.”
The opening reception for Cheyne Walls: Miles from Los Angeles, in conjunction with Jennifer MaHarry: New Wilderness, will be held Saturday, August 12 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 National Wildlife Federation. Please RSVP to G2reception.eventbrite.com.
