The G2 Gallery

The G2 Gallery has only been open for a year, but it is already generating lots of buzz in both the art and environmental world. Located in Venice, CA, the Gallery showcases the art of wildlife photographers and donates the proceeds from all art sales to environmental causes. Yeah! Another champion to help stave off the effects of our man-made messes.

Mom loves the current exhibit at the Gallery because it showcases an animal that she studied intensely before she got interested in sea turtles - penguins. Cold Feet: Penguins of the Antarctic is on exhibit through April 5. The artist J.J. L'Heureux made her first trip to Antarctica in the winter of 2000-2001 and she has returned nearly every year to photograph the amazing wildlife that call the frozen continent home. Her amazing photographs capture the essence of the penguins in a way few have. Mom wants to go to Antarctica so bad, so maybe she should contact J.J. to see if she needs a porter for her luggage. Mom would have a lot to talk to J.J. about because J.J. is also a certified docent at the San Franciso Zoo.

Even if you can't make it to the Gallery in person, check out it out at The exhibits are sure to awe you and may even inspire a few of you to dust off your cameras and head outdoors.
