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 premiere New Wilderness, the latest photography collection from Jennifer MaHarry. Featuring a bold new take on traditional nature photography, New Wilderness presents eye-catching animal portraits on subtly manipulated backgrounds for a compelling overall effect.

The spirit of the wild is celebrated and illuminated in the photography. Well-known for her clean and unique compositions of wild horses, canids and birds of prey as preferred subjects, MaHarry’s new work artfully includes abstracted graphics and textures, alluding to possible dangers that threaten the existence of these animals. The added elements encourage viewers to linger and take a second look, discovering for themselves the hidden message behind each image.

“The G2 Gallery has a long history with Jennifer MaHarry,” says Curator Monika Basse. “Having showcased her work since 2010, we are excited for viewers to see subject matter they’ve come to love presented in a new and dynamic way.”

“I hope people will enjoy the images on an aesthetic level,” Jennifer says. “At the same time, human activities are affecting wildlife more than ever, so hopefully the show will encourage conversation about this important issue.”

The opening reception for Jennifer MaHarry: New Wilderness, in conjunction with Cheyne Walls: Miles from Los Angeles, 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.
