Our SMFA community includes faculty, staff, students, and alumni who are accomplished working artists, scholars, researchers, and activists. Below is a running listing of some of their many recent exhibitions, awards, publications, and other notable accomplishments.

Professor of the Practice Ethan Murrow, along with his co-author Vita Murrow, will be recognized by legislators at the State House on January 18th as part of the Massachusetts Book Awards. Their mostly wordless book for young readers, Zero Local, with Candlewick Press was chosen as an Honor Book for this award program.

Professor of the Practice Ethan Murrow will be in Paris this February for the inaugural opening of Galerie Les Filles du Calvaire's second exhibition space in the Marais. Ethan and other artists represented by Les Filles du Calvaire are part of the show Persona.

Professor of the Practice Jennifer Schmidt was recently awarded artist-in-residence fellowships at TYPA in Tartu, Estonia, Directangle Press in Bethlehem, New Hampshire, and The Morgan Conservatory in Cleveland, Ohio.

Professor of the Practice Jennifer Schmidt had an article published in the Printmaker’s Diary in Printmaking Today, the journal of the Royal Painter-Printmakers in the UK. 


Professor of the Practice Ethan Murrow was recently invited by D+S Fine Art Editions to complete a new stone lithograph at their shop in Paris. Over the summer in La Force France, Ethan also worked with D+S at their second shop to create large-scale lithographs on a Marinoni Voirin Press from 1880, one of just four of its kind in the world, and one of the biggest still in use. Master printers Deb Chaney and Stéphane Guilbaud celebrated the release of three new editions at an opening at their shop with Ethan on December 2 in Paris. This project was supported in part by the generous funding of a Tufts FRAC grant.

Professor of the Practice, Kendall Reiss's project, Being [with] Trees, was recently published in: Anthotype Emulsions, Volume 1: The collective research from photographers on World Anthotype Day. The book includes a Rosa rugosa emulsion and the resulting anthotype of a tulip tree leaf, both generated by a community of Being [with] Trees workshop participants.
