Ro2 Art is pleased to present a group show, 'In Search of Meaning,' featuring new works by Charles Richard Clary, Cuyler Etheredge, Kelly Ingleright-Telgenhoff, Carol Ivey, Julon Pinkston, and Ben Terry.
The gallery is very proud to exhibit the six artists in the first show of 2017, presenting works that are distinctive of each artist's individual and varying approaches to “a search for meaning” in both public and private spheres. Conversely, 'In Search of Meaning' allows viewers to conduct an inquiry of their own as they consider each artist’s lens and their various subjects, inspirations, and methods.
