Kathleen Robbins

INTO THE FLATLAND

The Halsey Institute opens the 2014 fall season with two photography exhibitions including work by Yaakov Israel and Kathleen Robbins. Both exhibitions are curated by Mark Sloan, Director and Chief Curator at the Halsey Institute.

Into the Flatland, by Kathleen Robbins, 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.
