LA JOLLA, Calif., Sept. 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ —
Highly acclaimed landscape photographer, Ian Ely, proudly presents the Grand Opening of his eponymous show space, Ian Ely Gallery.
The doors to Ian Ely Gallery officially open Saturday, October 1st, 2016 at 6:00 p.m. In addition to being able to meet the artist / photographer, guests will enjoy cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live music and much more.
Located in the center of arts and culture focused Prospect Street, La Jolla, Ian Ely has created an environment that uniquely showcases his highly acclaimed works such as the award winning Crystal Passage, Portal Beckon, Archean Arc, Resurrection and the panoramic Salutation.
This new gallery was created by the merging of two spaces in the beautiful Village of La Jolla opening it up into one large fine art photography gallery encompassing 1,800 sq. ft. with 13 foot ceilings. The beautifully done interiors allow the space to ideally showcase the artists stunning, custom framed images sizing from 6 feet x 8 feet to panoramas ranging 9 feet long and triptychs ranging from 10 feet x 7 feet.
Background: Ian Ely was born and raised in California. His fiery love for the outdoors was stoked at a very young age by wilderness camping, nature outings and road trips from California to visit family in the Midwest.
Ian says from his heart that among the many natural wonders he has perceived, the breath-taking natural beauty he experienced on multiple mountain excursions aboard a back-country steam engine train in Colorado most inspired him to pursue unbounded dreams of sharing captured, spectacular “moments in time and space” with others.
Earning his first camera at age ten by selling magazines was yet another event contributing to his completed realization later in life that landscape photography was his mission, his passion, his dream.
Inspired by nature and encouraged by his exposure and connection with his environment, Ian’s love of photography evolved from curiosa, to interest, to limitless dreams, to passionate pursuit of perfection in his desire to share his art with others.
Ian Ely’s photography patently shows that failure to “get his shot” is not an option in his world, regardless of the elements, the logistics or apparent limitations of reality. Ian often quips, without a trace of doubt, “…Wait ’till you see what’s next!”
