A reception was held on Sept. 26 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. in the Cullis Wade Depot Art Gallery for theĀ 2013 fall MSU Department of Art-Noxubbe Wildlife Refuge Artist In Residence, Kathryn Hunter.

The exhibits on display included “Kathryn Hunter: Confluence” and “The Human-Animal Bond Letterpress Print Invitational,” which are being held in conjunction with the the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine’s Human-Animal Bond Lecture Series through Nov. 1. The reception was made possible by the Starkville Area Arts Council.

Hunter, operator of Blackbird Letterpress in Baton Rouge, La., is a printmaking graduate of Montana State University and also holds a master of fine arts degree in printmaking from Louisiana State University. A native of Decatur, Ala., she is currently represented by Le Mieux Galleries in New Orleans.

Hunter also hosted a “Meet the Artist” event on Sat., Sept. 27 at the Noxubee Wildlife Refuge Visitor’s Center. Visitors were invited to meet the artist and see the work she has created during her time visiting the Refuge. Many of the works were in progress, a great way to see how Hunter develops her ideas and final pieces.

The residency is made possible by the Friends of the Noxubee Wildlife Refuge and the Starkville Area Arts Council. The exhibit of Kathryn Hunter’s work is made possible by the MSU Department of Art; College of Architecture, Art and Design and the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine.
