“I chose Curry because I didn't just want to be a face in the crowd. I wanted to have those close-knit relationships with other students; I wanted to get to know my professors.”

Professor Laurie Alpert had a solo exhibition at the Bromfield Gallery in Boston in May, 2015. The show, titled "Bound/Unbound", asked the question as to whether each "page" of an artists' book can exist on it's own as a strong and resolved image, or whether it needs the sequential context in which to exist.
Alpert's work uses a 500 year old Korean papermaking technique called Joomchi. In this process, you dampen layers of thin mulberry papers and agitate them together for several minutes, unrolling halfway through and rerolling in the other direction. They can then be unrolled and sculpted into various forms. She has become fascinated with this process and continues to integrate it into her prints and artists' books. She also exhibited work at the Art Complex Museum in Duxbury, the New Bedford Art Museum, George Mason University in Washington D.C., and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis.
In June of 2016, she did a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the largest international artists and writers residency program in the U.S. Upcoming shows include "Full Tilt Print Studio" at the Duxbury Art Complex where she will be giving a talk on November 18 and a solo exhibit at the Bromfield Gallery in April, 2017. In December, she will be participating in the Northampton Book and Book Arts Fair at Smith College.
Professor Iris Kumar presented 'Prints, Drawings, and Mixed Media' at Curry College's art exhibit space in the Student Center Quiet Study Lounge in the winter of 2015.
