Artist Lecture with Kathleen Robbins

Friday, August 22, 2014
Room 309, Simons Center for the Arts, 54 St. Philip St.

The Halsey Institute will present an artist talk by exhibiting artist Kathleen Robbins on Friday, August 22 at 5:30pm in Room 309 of the Simons Center for the Arts located at 54 St. Philip Street on the College of Charleston campus.

Kathleen Robbins is a native of Mississippi and spent much of her childhood on a piece of property 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, entitled Into the Flatland, 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 in 2001 after completing graduate studies in New Mexico. She and her brother lived on the farm for nearly two years, breathing life back into family properties that had been long dormant.

Kathleen Robbins moved to Columbia, South Carolina in 2003 to teach art and photography at the University of South Carolina.
