Current Exhibition

 

Ansel Adams • American Landscapes

Cavallo Point is delighted to present images by Ansel Adams, the legendary photographer and environmentalist. From 1948 to 1976, Adams produced seven portfolios, each a limited edition of signed photographic prints. Cavallo Point is proud to feature Adams' "Portfolio Two | The National Parks & Monuments". The exhibit is held in conjunction with sister property Post Ranch Inn and The G2 Gallery. Portfolio Two will begin at Cavallo Point while another of Adams' collections, Portfolio Four, will display at Post Ranch Inn, before switching locations in the fall.

Portfolio Two is available for purchase as a complete collection for $125,000. A portion of proceeds will be donated to Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy and Turning Green. The portfolio on exhibit – set number 57 of 100 – includes 15 silver gelatin prints mounted on board, printed in 1950, and signed in ink.

About Portfolio Two | The National Parks & Monuments
Portfolio Two focuses on a subject for which Ansel Adams is particularly renowned, America's national parks and monuments. Featuring some of his most iconic photographs, the images reflect Adams' passion for maintaining those areas as protected land for generations to come. Such famous images as "Zabriskie Point, Death Valley National Monument, California, 1942" and "Moth and Stump, Interglacial Forest, Glacier Bay National Monument, Alaska, 1949" helped spur on the conservation movement in the United States.

About Ansel Adams (1902 – 1984)
Born in San Francisco, photographer and environmentalist Ansel Easton Adams is one of the foremost figures in the history of American photography. A leader in conservation photography, his legacy is profound. Aware of his art's power and potential, he used his images to vitalize positive change for the environment.

Kay Carlson

Kay Carlson is a California Plein Air Colorist in the Impressionist tradition. Her Sausalito gallery presents paintings from the Bay Area, Northern California landscapes, Napa Sonoma vineyards and Tuscany. Working in oil on canvas, Kay has a passion to see and capture how color is changed by the influence of light. Looking beyond a landscape's physical qualities, Kay chooses locations with a certain wildness, where the essence and story are more than contours and lines. In Sausalito, near her waterfront studio, she explores times of the day when waves, clouds and atmosphere create a visual drama. Kay received her B.A. from the University of Wisconsin. Relocating to San Francisco in 1971, she followed her interest in painting at the San Francisco Art Institute. Since then, her work has been widely displayed – in solo exhibitions in Northern California, U.S. galleries, Italy and Spain, and private and corporate collections. Kay founded Marin Open Studios to increase the public's awareness and appreciation of local artists. In 2000 she received the American Impressionist Society Merit Award.
