Video: Walk on Wild Side
STARKVILLE, Miss. – (WCBI) You could take a walk on the wild side in Starkville Thursday night.
Kathryn Hunter showed off her latest print work at Mississippi State University. Hunter used printmaking, paper cutting and mixed media to create a visual relationship between people and animals.
She didn’t have to travel far to find inspiration. She began working on the collection earlier this year, and used the Sam Hamilton Noxubee Wildlife Refuge as her inspiration.
Hunter is the owner of the Blackbird Letterpress of Louisiana, and is a native of Decatur, Alabama.
