Kathleen Robbins will be having an opening reception for an exhibition of photographs from her series Into the Flatland at Beard and Riser Studios in Greenwood, Mississippi, on Tuesday, September 6th, from 5:00pm - 8:00pm.

Here’s more information about Into the Flatland from Robbins’ project statement: "The photographs in this series were made during regular trips home to visit family over a period of several years. These are the people I love most in a place that I am deeply connected to. I chose to leave the Mississippi Delta for many of the same reasons anyone ever chooses to leave a rural area. This is land that my family has inhabited for generations, and I am pulled to this place in a way that I am not able to fully articulate. It is not my nostalgia alone that creates this longing; it is that of my mother and my mother’s mother."

Beard and Riser Studios is located at 201 Main Street, Greenwood, Mississippi, 38930. Here’s a link to Google Maps for directions.

"The greatest thing a human soul ever does in this world is to see something, and tell what it saw in a plain way. Hundreds of people can talk for one who can think, but thousands can think for one who can see. To see clearly is poetry, prophecy, and religion, — all in one." — John Ruskin
