The Art Of The Experience

Since the beginning, Post Ranch has been committed to featuring original art on property and supporting the artistic community both in Big Sur and around the world. Guests are invited to discover the myriad of artistic touches found throughout the property including the sculptures, photography, architecture and of course, the artistry which mother nature has created all around us.


The Post Gallery & Sculpture Garden


The Post Gallery offers an array of black and white photography, sculptures and fine jewelry. Kodiak Greenwood, a Big Sur photographer, along with Big Sur’s Trevor Meeker who creates art from recycled metal, are featured in the Post Gallery, along with other artists and photographers. The Sculpture Garden, just outside The Post Gallery, offers a peaceful refuge in which to enjoy sculptures by Robert Holmes, Greg Hawthorne and James Hunolt amongst others.

Current Exhibition


The Photography of Luther Gerlach


The Post Gallery is pleased to present the photography of Luther Gerlach, who has made his career working in a variety of historical processes for over 30 years. Shooting in the field and working in the darkroom, Gerlach manipulates the constraints of the processes and technologies to create some of the largest, most technically perfect examples of alternative process photography today, particularly wet plate collodion. With the plate exposed directly through the camera’s lens, each exposure creates a one-of-a-kind image. Gerlach’s work is a testament to the enduring value of handmade photography in a digital world.

The Post Gallery will be displaying Gerlach’s work along with one of the 19th century cameras he uses to create his images. He is exhibited internationally and in major private and museum collections including the J. Paul Getty museum, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art and the Wilson Centre for Photography. We invite you to visit The Post Gallery to view the work of Luther Gerlach.
