Curlee Raven Holton, associate professor of art and director of Lafayette’s Experimental Printmaking Institute, will speak on “Integrating Computer Technology into the Artist’s Studio — Implications for the Art of Printmaking” at 4:10 p.m. Monday, Nov. 20, in the auditorium of Lafayette’s Kirby Hall of Civil Rights.

Free and open to the public, the talk is sponsored by Lafayette’s Academic Research Committee (ARC).

Holton’s areas of interest and expertise include printmaking, African American art history, drawing, and painting. He has mounted more than 30 one-person shows and participated in more than 75 group exhibitions, including the Seventh International Biennale at the National Center of Fine Arts, Cairo, and shows at Centro de Cultura Casa Lamm Gallery, Mexico City. His works are in the collections of several universities, foundations, and corporations.

Holton has participated in several residencies and special projects and has served as curator for a dozen exhibitions. He has also authored many articles and essays and presented numerous papers.

The talk is one of six ARC faculty presentations this school year. The remaining research forums will be held at the same time and place on the following dates: Feb. 19, Scott Moor, assistant professor of chemical engineering; March 26, William D. Jemison, assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering; and April 23, James DeVault, associate professor of economics and business.

Geared for a broad audience, talks are less technical than a presentation that would be given at a professional meeting. Presentations last 20 to 30 minutes and are followed by a question-and-answer and discussion session.

“The idea behind the research forum is to allow the college community to learn what research is like in different fields and the interests of various faculty,” says Jeff Bader, associate provost and director of research services. There are three presentations in each semester. The fields rotate so that there is at least one person presenting every school year in each of the four academic divisions: humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering.
