A solo exhibition of new work by Alisha McCurdy ’08, M’09 took place in June 2011. “In the Seams” was exhibited at the Oasis Gallery in Marquette, Michigan.
Alisha is at work completing her Master of Fine Arts degree at Stony Brook University, Stony Brook, New York. Her work was selected for exhibition in the Best of SUNY (State University of New York) Student Exhibition, which took place in June at the New York State Museum in Albany.
Three of her artist books were featured in a group show, Honoring the Page, at Gallery North in East Setauket, New York, along with fellow artists Peter Freleng, Larissa Grass, and Sungsook Setton.
“Finally, I am most honored to be named the MFA recipient of the Maurice M. and Miriam H. Goldberger Fellowship for Fine Arts during 2011–2012,” Alisha said. The fellowship is awarded annually to two graduate students, one in M.F.A. art studio and another in M.A./Ph.D. art history and criticism studying at Stony Brook University. Each recipient is elected by the department faculty based on artistic scholarship and merit.
“I look forward to dedicating the funds awarded to my upcoming solo and group thesis exhibitions taking place November 2011 and February 2012 respectively,” Alisha said.
