“When I first got to Curry I met the psychology professors and right away they were super friendly and welcomed me in; that's a huge reason why I came. I was nervous at first but they made me feel really comfortable.”

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, then 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, and the Minnesota Center for Book Arts in Minneapolis. Upcoming exhibits include "Al Mutanabbi Street Starts Here" at George Mason University in Washington DC, "Full Tilt Print Studio" at the Duxbury Art Complex and a solo exhibit at the Bromfield Gallery in April, 2017. In June, she will be doing a residency at the Vermont Studio Center, the largest international artists and writers residency program in the U.S.
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.
