Dallas, TX.- Ro2 Art is proud to present "Cut Copy Paste Paint – work by Terry Hays and Kathy Robinson-Hays", on view at the gallery until August 12th. The exhibition will take place at Ro2 Art's Uptown gallery, located at 3699 McKinney Avenue #310 at West Village. The title for the show, Cut Copy Paste Paint, was chosen to help partially explain the similarity of the work and process of Kathy Robinson-Hays and Terry Hays. Having shared a studio space for years they also share a copy machine, computer, scanner and printer - equipment they both rely on heavily.

Walton Ford

Walton Ford's fabulously detailed, Audubon-on-Viagra watercolors have been flying off gallery walls -- even if most of his audience is baffled by the peculiar birds and beasts that populate his paintings, and the darkly funny (and disturbing) stuff they're up to. The artist, as it turns out, is just as unconventional as his work.

Friedensreich Hundertwasser

Hundertwasser 699 The houses are hanging below the woods (meadows), 1971.

The time is ripe for a renaissance of Friedensreich Hundertwasser, for a comprehensive tribute to this innovative artist and ecological visionary. This biographic and thematic exhibition spotlights significant junctures in his life and work which, taken together, convey an overall impression of Hundertwasser as a person and as an artist and serve as signposts to the intellectual and artistic cosmos of an original thinker and pioneer – a peacemaker between human beings and nature, who placed his art and his life in the service of the green path.

Hundertwasser 695 Come and walk with me - Double talk, 1970.

Stan VanDerBeek is a legendary name in the history of experimental film. A restless adventurer who began making experimental animated films in the 1950s, VanDerBeek filmed happenings, designed windows for Tiffany's and worked with John Cage and Claes Oldenburg.

He also explored the artistic possibilities of new technologies of his time: video, computers, even the fax machine. He was artist-in-residence at Bell Labs and at NASA.

Now, a survey of VanDerBeek's work is on display at the Contemporary Arts Museum in Houston
