It is sometimes easy to forget that The Ansel Adams Gallery began as a painting studio operated by Ansel’s father-in-law Harry Best from 1902 until 1936. Mr. Best’s style of painting grew out of the Hudson River School variety as he ventured into both studio and plain air sessions. Today the Gallery continues this tradition […]

This month, as part of our Unique Fine Print Offer series, we are excited to feature two palladium based photographs by Kerik Kouklis that pay homage to the great fuel of soul in landscape artists: The National Park. These images, “El Capitan Engulfed in Clouds, Yosemite” (available as a traditional palladium print) and “Sunrise, Fernandina Island, the Galapagos,” (available as a palladium over pigment print) while from two different hemispheres, speak to the inspiration of our natural world, as well as its inherent, irreplaceable beauty, and its paradoxical delicate solidity. Both images will be offered in 7×10.5″ and 12×18″ sizes.
It is a celebrated aspect of art in the National Parks that, when successful, it evokes an emotional response and depicts a consequential interpretation of these majestic spaces. There is a caveat of this art which intends to help us see more literally the form that our parks like Yosemite have taken, while also guiding […]

In 1977, William Neill found his own life’s path redirected when he came to photograph Yosemite for the first time. Not long after, he began working at The Ansel Adams Gallery as a staff photographer, teaching visitors all he could about the art form and the place that he loved. While other itinerant interests would take him on journeys far and wide, from the American Southwest to Antartica, he would make Yosemite his permanent home. Forty years later, to commemorate his commitment to photography and great body of work, The Ansel Adams Gallery will be hosting the exhibit “William Neill — A Retrospective” between July 9th to August 19th, 2017
