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 from Friday, January 7th to Wednesday, April 13th in the Glen Arbor Arts Center 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.
The "Woodland Studies" exhibition may be viewed in the Glen Arbor Arts Center lobby gallery or online here. Admission is free.
