Kathleen Robbins Gallery Talk

When: Sat., Aug. 23, 2-3 p.m. 2014

Kathleen Robbins is a native of Mississippi and spent much of her childhood on the family farm known as Belle Chase, in Tallahatchie County. Surrounded by swarming blackbirds over the canebreak, the Robbins family has grown cotton on this land for more than a century. Her exhibition "Into the Flatland" at the Halsey Institute is a series of photographs documenting the land, people, and culture of the Mississippi Delta. The artist returned to her ancestral home as an adult. She and her brother lived on the farm for nearly two years, breathing life back into long-dormant family properties.

Price: Free and open to the public!
