Few things beat the beauty of a Venice sunset.

Photographers Danny Rice and Andrew Karl shared that beauty with the world when they started posting their images of the beach and boardwalk at the golden hour on Instagram.

Under the handle @Venice_Sunsets, they’ve become a sensation on the social media app, gaining more than 90,000 followers and attention from Buzzfeed and Thrillist as a follow-worthy Instagram account.

Now you can see Rice’s and Karl’s sunset photographs not just online, but on an actual wall.

The Venice-based photography duo takes their photos from digital to print for the first time in an exhibition at the Laura Korman Gallery in Bergamot Station Arts Center. “Venice Beach Sunsets” features Rice’s and Karl’s sunset photography on wood and in limited edition prints. By transitioning from social media into the fine art world, @Venice_Sunsets might just be one to follow.
