The Glen Arbor Arts Center is exhibiting Woodland Studies, a small exhibition of black and white photographs by Grand Rapids photographer Rodney Martin. The exhibition runs January 7 – April 13, 2022 in the GAAC Lobby Gallery.
Martin focuses his lens on the landscape. For the images in Woodland Studies, he zeros in on rivers, woods and orchards in Benzie, Grand Traverse and Leelanau counties. His images were created in all four seasons; but they are related by the quiet and solitude he frames. There is little evidence of human habitation in these scenes. Instead, the images are studies of shadow and texture, shades of gray, and the deep and refreshing beauty of places off the beaten path. Martin talks about his work, his tools and his intention in a short video interview with GAAC Gallery Manager Sarah Bearup-Neal. To watch the video go to: GlenArborArt.org/Exhibits/Current.
Woodland Studies may be viewed in the GAAC Lobby Gallery, or online: GlenArborArt.org/Exhibits/Current. The GAAC is located at 6031 S. Lake St., in Glen Arbor. Admission is free.
