Come to Sierra Club fundraiser at G2 Gallery

From Chapter reports

G2 Gallery in Venice will host an evening dedicated to the works of Alan Ross and donate benefits from an opening reception on Aug. 3 to the Sierra Club. Join us by attending the reception ($10 per person) and viewing the stunning photographs of the American West.

The show is called "American Grandeur" and features Ross' black and whites. After years of learning under venerable master of photography Ansel Adams, Ross made a name for himself capturing iconic western vistas with an expert eye and printing process. Much of "American Grandeur" features still, arid deserts and various unique plant life that dots the dry landscape; from twisting bristlecone pines to detailed aspens.

Yosemite, Death Valley, and Bryce Canyon are just a few of the western locales in which Alan found natural beauty waiting to be captured in classical black and white.

The stark contrast is reminiscent of Adams’ work, and Ross' years spent as his assistant are evident in the show. The fine detail, distinct composition, and powerful use of black and white echo Adams’ work while also standing on its own; a collection influenced by one master, and created by another.

The opening reception runs from 6:30 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 3. RSVP to the gallery if you plan to attend. The show remains on display until Sept. 15.

G2 Gallery is located at: 1503 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, Venice, CA  90291
