Davis & Elkins College art student Jessica Haileigh Carper will be presenting her Senior Showcase on Friday, December 8 from 6-8 p.m in the Art Department (Myles Center for the Arts lower floor). Her show will feature roughly 10 songbirds and three causes for the loss of songbirds in the United States. She wanted to express her concern with the loss of many songbird species due to human involvement in their habit and what we as a whole have done to increase their decrease. All of Haileigh’s work is made by reduction printing where one prints a color and carves away at the tile in order to print another. This process can take days or even weeks to complete. After graduation Haileigh plans on returning home to Baltimore, Md. She is not sure what her next step will be, but she stated that she will continue to make more beautiful pieces of art, just like her songbird collection.
