“Rare Places” in Los Angeles


My traveling exhibit, “Robert Turner: Rare Places in a Rare Light” was hosted most recently by The G2 Gallery in Venice, California. It ran from September 22 through November 8, 2009.

The gallery opened in March of 2008 in the bustling Abbot Kinney District in this beach community south of Santa Monica. My pictures showed very nicely in their space.

During the exhibit, I enjoyed spending time in the gallery during a series of public events starting with the crowded, upbeat opening reception. I ended up talking with a number of friends I hadn’t seen for years. The catering was excellent.

On Thursday, October 15th I gave a lecture with projected images to a knowledgeable and enthusiastic group. The questions were among the most perceptive I’ve encountered.

During the exhibit G2 took orders for prints of the photographs in the show as well an additional forty images that were available for review in a portfolio book in the gallery.

Rare Places began its run, in an earlier version, at the San Diego Natural History Museum. In its current form, it has been hosted by venues at Harvard, Cleveland, the Napa Valley of Northern California, and Cody, Wyoming.
