The G2 Gallery in Venice is presenting a new Nature LA exhibit featuring works by Santa Monica-based photographer Tatiana Botton through Dec. 30.
An opening reception is scheduled Friday, Nov. 9, from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at G2, 1503 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice.
During a trek to the southernmost continent in 2008, Botton said she was mesmerized by icebergs, which she described as monuments that refuse to stand still.
“Nothing remains the same in Antarctica,” said Botton.
She noted that her photography aims to emphasize the qualities that make icebergs unique.
Two years after her trip, Botton began to cull her Antarctic images, sifting through the data to make editorial decisions regarding her work. The images presented in the exhibit are very much like what she saw through her viewfinder, she says. Very little color correction was done and no processing was performed.
The reception Nov. 9 also celebrates the opening of Emerging V with T.C. Badalato, Bill Slate and Brenton Spies, and Friend or Fo-to featuring Robert Adams.
Live music, light hors d’oeuvres, wine, and complimentary valet parking are included at the opening reception.
Admission to the reception is $5, and all proceeds benefit the following environmental organizations: David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Friends of Ballona Wetlands, Sierra Club, Urban Carnivores, Wildlife Conservation Network and World Wildlife Fund.
