A master printmaker, Curlee Raven Holton is a Professor of Art at Lafayette College teaching printmaking and African American art history since 1991. He is the Founding Director of the Experimental Printmaking Institute (EPI) at Lafayette and is recognized for his commitment to artistic excellence and education and for creating work that draws the viewer into important critical dialogue. Holton is continuously collaborating with printmakers and scholars across different disciplines to create portfolios of prints and handmade books. His creative energy is endless as he travels with his own exhibitions or promotes the artists of EPI.
Holton’s powerful work presents issues of race, spirituality, and social justice. Struggles, both personal and universal, are presented through his dramatic use of color symbolism and figurative representations. Holton has exhibited his work professionally for over 25 years, both nationally and internationally, including The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Whitney Museum of American Art, and Egypt’s international Biennale.
