The incredible Ansel Adams exhibition is a special curated show in conjunction with The G2 Gallery in Venice, CA (an award-winning nature and wildlife photography gallery that facilitates change by bringing attention to environmental issues through the persuasive power of photographic art), and Cavallo Point’s sister property, Post Ranch Inn in Big Sur.


Getting There is a group exhibit that culled images from Southern California photographers in pursuit of showing just how many animals could benefit from a wildlife crossing. Coyotes, mountain lions, deer, foxes, lizards and many other creatures are killed each year trying to cross Los Angeles highways and roads.
