Peggy Wauters
microstories
September 30 - October 28
Ro2 Art is thrilled to present ‘microstories,’ an exhibition of paintings by artist Peggy Wauters. The
show will run from September 30 through October 28, 2017. There will be an opening reception
held Saturday, September 30th, from 7:15-10 p.m. at Ro2 Art, located at 1501 S. Ervay Street in
Dallas’ Cedars neighborhood.

Peggy Wauters’ newest body of work sees the artist returning to her famed miniature paintings.
These paintings, often barely several inches long, embody all the splendor, gravitas, and
technique that many artists struggle with putting into much larger paintings. Clusters of paintings
are framed in vignettes that work as miniature narratives, while also retaining their power as
singular pieces. Watuters’ signature portraits, landscapes, and subtle sense of humor make a
return as well as some bold new fungus inspired sculptures.

Ro2 Art is thrilled to present ‘Iceberg X,’ an exhibition of works by artist Adam Benjamin
Fung. The show will run from September 30 through October 28, 2017. There will be an
opening reception held Saturday, September 30th, from 7:15-10 p.m. at Ro2 Art, located
at 1501 S. Ervay Street in Dallas’ Cedars neighborhood.

In his newest series, artist Adam Fung recaptures the enchanting landscapes that he
witnessed during his Artist Residency in the Arctic Circle. While his paintings offer a
gorgeous glimpse into this frozen wonderland, Fung is also intent to provide a sobering
reminder that many of these sites now look drastically different, or no longer exist, due to
climate change.  Fung’s work features ghostly monochromatic renditions of the various
glaciers, icebergs, and seas that inspired him, paired with an unexpected, yet
unmistakable, symbol of loss.  The significance of Iceberg X lies in its ability to present a
visual quandary for the viewer; the X reinforces the painted surface, but its transparency
allows the viewer to re-enter the painting as a window into another world.
