Galen Rowell Exhibit at G2 Gallery in L.A.

The G2 Gallery, Venice, CAThrough May 17, 2009, the G2 Gallery in Los Angeles is featuring an exhibit entitled Galen Rowell: A Retrospective. This exhibit spans Galen's entire career from his first appearance in National Geographic in 1974 through his last expedition, a 275-mile trek across Tibet's Chang Tang in search of the migration route of the endangered chiru (Tibetan antelope). A reception will be held on Friday, May 1, from 6 to 9 pm.

On May 15 at 7 pm, the G2 Gallery Lecture Series will present celebrated climbing icon Conrad Anker, who will speak about the 2002 Chang Tang expedition he participated in with Galen Rowell and Rick Ridgeway. Widely considered to be among the world's most inhospitable environments, the trio trekked the barren and remote 275-mile route pulling all of their gear on custom-made aluminum rickshaws. Their discovery of the breeding grounds of the endangered chiru resulted in the Chinese government's creation of a nature preserve to safeguard this rare antelope's habitat.

The G2 Gallery is committed to promoting the appreciation and conservation of our natural environment through photography and other art forms. G2 presents an illuminating range of exhibits that showcase nature and wildlife photography by artists who inform, inspire and generate greater awareness of the environmental issues we face. The G2 is an Eco-Conscience Gallery, and donates all art proceeds to a variety of environmental charities.

The G2 Gallery is located at 1503 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, CA 90291, phone (310) 452-2842.
