Terra Galleria Artworks is honored to announce Viewpoint, a retrospective exhibition of works by photographer Ray McSavaney. The exhibition opens on November 1 and will run through December 24.  This retrospective offers a rare opportunity to view images from several of McSavaney's photographic projects, many of which are on display for the first time. Besides the exquisite natural and urban landscapes for which he is renowned, the exhibit showcases a series of striking portraits of people he just happened to pull off the street of Los Angeles, and a series of floral studies.

McSavaney left a career in urban planning in the late 1970s to focus on his photographic pursuits. As a participant in the Ansel Adams Photography Workshops, McSavaney continues to pass on the tradition as co-founder of the Owen Valley Photography Workshop. His work has been published in View Camera, "West of Eden: A History of the Art and Literature of Yosemite," and Outdoor Photographer among other publications. His book of urban and natural landscapes entitled "Explorations," was selected by the American Institute of Graphic Arts as "One of the Fifty Best Books of the Year."

Please join us to celebrate the highlights of Ray McSavaney's work in this retrospective at the artist reception on November 1st, 5pm-9pm, and stay tuned for the "Explorations" book signing and lecture in early December at the gallery:  Terra Galleria Artworks, 2525 Michigan Avenue T-1B, Santa Monica, CA  90404.  Gallery hours:  Tues-Sat 11am-6pm.
