DESCRIPTION

The G2 Gallery will premiere State of the Sharks, a new exhibit of photography that documents the beauty and fragility of the ocean’s top predators.  The exhibit seeks to educate the public and raise awareness for the plight of sharks in the run up to the biannual Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora & Fauna (C.I.T.E.S.) which will consider listing sharks as endangered species in March of 2013.

The G2 Gallery will donate all proceeds from the exhibit to benefit the marine life activist organization Shark Savers. 

Also featured will be What Majestic Word Ansel Adams Portfolio Four, Nature LA:  Christina Craemer, and Jennifer MaHarry.

An opening reception for the quartet of exhibits will be held on January 19, from 6:30–9:00 pm.  Admission to the event will be $5 at the door and all proceeds will benefit Shark Savers.  Live music, wine, hors d’oeuvres, and complimentary valet parking.
