This event is sold out.  Thank you for your support of the arts in this community. 

In March we’re celebrating the work of husband-and-wife pair Mark Steinmetz and Irina Rozovsky, both of whom are exceptional photographers.

Two different people described Mark’s work as “exquisite”! His photos are in the collections or have been exhibited at the Met, the Museum of Modern Art, the High Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago — and so many other prominent museums. A Guggenheim Fellow, he's taught photography at Harvard and Yale. His work is gorgeously gathered in a dozen books of his photographs, and another is in the works.

Irina’s work is also held by the Met — and she’s received photo commissions from The New York Times Magazine, The New Yorker, Le Monde, Vice and others prominent media. In 2017 her work was paired in a kind of dialogue form with another photographer’s at the Met for an exhibition called “Talking Pictures: Camera-Phone Conversations Between Artists,” and that show — where 60 of her photos were exhibited— was written up in The New York Times. She teaches at the University of Georgia. 

The event will start at a cool space called The Humid where the pair holds workshops and exhibits. Then the group will walk to the couple’s home — about three blocks away -- where they’ll also see their edible garden and Mark’s photo lab. This is, as always, a benefit for public radio station WUGA.The event at their beautiful home will be held rain or shine —- with delicious hors d’oeuvres, lemonade and tea catered by Marti’s at Midday and terrific wine supplied by Uncommon Gourmet.
