‘Venice Beach Sunsets’ exhibit opens today

Venice-based photographers Danny Rice and Andrew Karl will host their first gallery exhibition starting today at Laura Korman Gallery.

The duo’s self-titled exhibition, Venice Beach Sunsets, is on view today through Jan. 6, 2016. A public reception will be held on Saturday, Dec. 12, 12-4 pm.

Rice and Karl began their collaborative photography project as a hobby.

Shortly after moving to the Venice Beach area in 2013, the friends and colleagues made it a routine to photograph a sunset every day, posting their daily shots to social media.

Their creative diversion quickly grew, and @Venice_Sunsets now boasts more than 88,000 Instagram followers.

With online features on the Chive’s “Instagrams That Are Worth A Follow,” Thrillist’s “15 L.A. Instagram Accounts You Need to Follow Right Now,” and Buzzfeed’s “24 Instagram Accounts That Will Make You Fall In Love With the USA,” Venice Beach Sunsets’ has a significant online presence and a popularity that continues to grow.

Most recently, Venice Sunsets has collaborated with the Los Angeles Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, as well as Discover L.A., sharing their images with local audiences through Discover L.A.’s “L.A. Neighborhoods Project” and contributing featured images for the Getty Center’s “Saturdays Off the 405,” among numerous others.

Currently, in Venice Beach Sunsets’ first exhibition, Rice and Karl make the transition from the digital format to printed media with photographs on wood and limited edition prints of their sunset photography at Laura Korman Gallery.  The duo will also show their works in the upcoming Venice Art Crawl later in December.

“Living in Venice, we’ve come to realize how much of a small town it can be in a big city,” says Rice. “(We) wanted to do something different, eclectic, and sustainable while also supporting the local businesses.”

Venice Beach Sunsets celebrates the natural beauty of Southern California with daily photographs of colorful sunsets from the iconic Venice boardwalk and Los Angeles Coast from every vantage point.

The reception will coincide with the Bergamot Open House holiday party from 12-4 pm.

Laura Korman Gallery is located at Bergamot Station Arts Center, 2525 Michigan Ave., Space D2, Santa Monica.
