Ro2 Art is proud to present traveling light, a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Kathy Robinson-Hays. The show will run from May 5 through June 2, 2018. There will be an opening reception held Saturday, May 5, from 7-10pm at Ro2 Art located at 1501 S. Ervay Street in Dallas’ Cedars neighborhood.
Through her vision of the landscape, Kathy Robinson-Hays references themes of fragility, transparency, the discarded and the forgotten. As an adoptee she sees all of us as tourists on this planet, who need to take better care of each other as well as our vacation home.
