Welcome Home is a solo-exhibition featuring the artwork of Maggie Roof. The collection will be on view at The Downstairs Gallery from May 24th- 26th. The opening reception will be held on Friday, May 24th from 6 to 9 pm. This event is free and open to the public. The Downstairs Gallery is located on 19 W. Gordon Street, Savannah GA.
The work featured in Welcome Home focuses on the optical effects of water influenced by particular elements of nature. In a landscape, water acts as a mirror reflecting the surrounding environment. Yet this image is distorted through the natural movement of the water. The reflected image could be seen as its own environment, a new scenery that is being introduced through this effect. Inspired by her hometown of Savannah, Roof aims to convey these elements corresponding with one another harmoniously.
Maggie Roof (b. 1996, Georgia) will be receiving a B.F.A. in Painting with a minor in Museum Studies at Savannah College of Art and Design, Savannah, Georgia in the spring of 2019. Roof’s current work focuses on the reflection of water as it pertains to the surrounding landscape. Through her work, she hopes to convey the simple beauty of nature. Roof is currently working and exhibiting in Savannah, GA.
