Jane Robbins Kerr: Bits and Pieces from Mississippi
January 10 – March 1, 2020
Members Reception, Friday, January 31, 5 – 8 p.m.
This exhibition presents 30 photographs by Jane Robbins Kerr, a Jackson, Mississippi native who has spent most of her adult life in Atlanta, Georgia.
After retiring from a real estate career, Kerr traveled the world photographing people and places. Her travels led her to photograph the beauty of Morocco, Tanzania, Nepal, and Mexico, among other distant places.
More recently she returned to her roots to photograph her home state of Mississippi.
Whether in Greenwood, Tupelo, Jackson or Alligator, Jane Robbins Kerr brings her love of history, color, storytelling, and home to her images.
“My life thus far has been full. Traveling the world and getting to know different cultures has been a blessing for me – especially in the time that I have spent in Mississippi the past decade or so. I was born in Mississippi, raised in Jackson and after graduation from college, I fled the state hoping to find another world and I did so. When I returned “home”, I saw the Delta for the first time and fell in love with it. It is hard to recall memories in total but bits and pieces float up to tell my story of Mississippi, the Delta and the rest of the state.” – Jane Robbins Kerr
