Cameron University will showcase the work of senior art major Hailey Harris with a special exhibition in the Sciences Complex. Harris will present a gallery talk at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 13. The exhibition will feature a variety of original relief prints and paintings and will be on display through mid-April.
"This exhibition is a great opportunity for Hailey to show her works outside the Department of Art,” says Liontas-Warren. “Her vision is unique, personal, meticulous, and inspirational. Cameron faculty, students and staff will find this exhibition to be outstanding in subject matter. We are very grateful to Dean Terry Conley in hosting this beautiful exhibition and look forward to future exhibitions in the Sciences Complex.”
The exhibition will focus on Harris’ fascination with insects. In her artist’s statement, she writes, “As I learned more about insects, I wanted to show the beauty that I see in them. People seem to have a natural disdain toward insects and tend to view insects as dirty disgusting creatures. The intention of my work is to depict insects in a more attractive light, while exploring the importance of insect interaction as well as the devastations that are occurring in our world.”
Harris, of Chattanooga, will graduate in May with a bachelor of fine arts in art. She plans to pursue a graduate degree in printmaking.
