Opening Saturday, February 8th, from 7PM - 10:30PM
In her first solo show post-college, photographer Maddie Rogers brings her photography to light at The Martin for one night only!
Join us for the opening reception of Maddie Rogers’ solo show: I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH MY HANDS . With assistance in curation and installation by The Martin co-founder, Whitney LaMora , this will be Rogers’ first solo show since her recent undergraduate degree completion and a certain not miss gallery event.
Maddie captures locations and people on film with the eye and haze of an ongoing summer afternoon. Whether its the ankles of her closest friends or the inside of a pool hall- Maddie has carved out a signature finish to her work that elevates and allows her vision and voice to be easily decipherable and relatable.
The show will feature photo prints and part of her senior exhibition for viewing.
Donation bar featuring Virtue Cider and Pilot Project Brewing will be available and artwork by the artist will also be available for purchase.
