Works of art by Curlee Raven Holton, associate professor of art and director of Lafayette’s Experimental Printmaking Institute, and student apprentices are on display in the College’s David A. Portlock Black Cultural Center. 101 McCartney St., through Oct. 5.

Carrie Spell, Lafayette’s new assistant dean of students and director of intercultural development, will be guest of honor at an opening reception at the center at 4:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 15.

Each of the nine current students and four recent graduates whose works are on display has worked with Holton as an apprentice, in an independent study, or as a participant in Lafayette’s EXCEL Scholar, in which students collaborate closely with faculty members on a research project while earning a stipend.

The current students are seniors Maureen Charleroy (Cranbury, N.J.), Alexis Bocchicchio (Marmora, N.J.), and Jill Chisesi (Easton, Pa.); juniors Christine Damiano (Washington, N.J.), Buffie Longmire (Watertown, Mass.), Kira Stackhouse (Easton, Pa.), and Megan Miller (Blue Bell, Pa.); sophomore Christopher Michaud (Millerton, N.Y.), and first-year student Iris Bogaert (Easton, Pa.).

The graduates are Liese Worthen ’97 (Easton, Pa.), Christopher Tague ’00 (Stamford, Conn.), Jessica McRorie ’00 (Coatesville, Pa.), and Rick Craw ’00 (Caldwell, N.J.).

The exhibit includes prints, drawings, and digital images on paper. Holton’s pieces include a print series called The Jazz.

The display is open to the public by appointment only. Call Kelly Deemer at the Office of Student Activities, 610-330-5337.
