opened the doors to gallery g-169 in the summer of 2008. The gallery focuses on exhibiting photographs of established and emerging artists often drawing from the rich reservoir of residents associated with the galleries location, the Santa Monica Canyon. In a short time the gallery has become a setting for many attendees, not only local but from afar, to pause, relate and share some moments together. Because of the advancement of technology, the gallery has been successful in bringing together like-minded individuals who are all part of the human fabric. The experience of befriending the artists and sharing their inspirations and points of view in this beautiful setting has been inspiring. Recently a talented young artist described the gallery as the “cultural generator” of the Santa Monica Canyon. It made me proud.
The gallery is housed in a building designed by James Tyler, FAIA on the edge of the Pacific.
