Bajo el Sol Hosting Opening Reception for Steve Simonsen Nov. 25

Bajo el Sol Gallery will host an opening reception for Steve Simonsen Friday, November 25, from 5 to 8 p.m. as part of “Evening in the Courtyard” at Mongoose Junction.

Simonsen, an award-winning photographer, will be displaying new work entitled “Into the Light.” His work as a photographer takes Simonsen to places both above and below the surface of the Caribbean and this show will capture wonders of the Caribbean and beyond.

The artist is recognized nationally as a nature, underwater, and travel photographer. His work has appeared in prestigious projects including Jean Michelle Cousteau’s “Cities Under The Sea”, and the Smithsonian’s traveling exhibit entitled, “Plant Ocean.” His own books include “The United States Virgin Islands, A Photographic Portrait”, and his award winning book “St. John, Living Art,” a pictorial collection that vibrantly documents one of the most beautiful places in the world, his own home island of St. John, published in 2003.

Simonsen’s work will be featured during the month of December. Bajo el Sol Gallery’s regular hours are 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. until 6 p.m. Sunday. The gallery is located at the top of the stone steps in Mongoose Junction. For more information call 693-7070.
