Current Kahn Family Fellow
Laura Robert comes to the Ink Shop after maximising her art and printmaking education through Cornell’s SCE (School of Continuing Education) program after her retirement from working as the Stacks Manager at the Cornell Law Library.
Exploring the themes of affirmation, community and education, Laura’s artistic work centers on language and repetition as a venue to educate, using a wide variety of mediums and methods and working in both small and large formats including small books, handheld, to large 30” x 40” mulberry prints, all tactile, accessible and relatable.
The Kahn Family Fellowship, in memory of our colleague Peter Kahn, is designed to offer opportunities to artists seeking further experience and professional development in printmaking and book arts, and is available to artists with postgraduate degrees in printmaking or book arts locally, nationally or internationally. The Fellow is given the privileges of a Printmaker Associate, including unlimited access to the studio to produce their own work, a stipend, the possibility of teaching workshops, and editioning for others on a fee basis, and will have a solo show here at The Ink Shop for the month of June.
