Director, Institute for Electronic Arts at Alfred University (IEA at AU)

Myles Calvert was born in Collingwood, Ontario. He attended the University of Guelph with a focus in printmaking, before traveling to London, UK where he completed his MA in Printmaking, at Camberwell College of Art (University for the Arts, London). Major bodies of work included installations of screen printed toast and the idolization of popular British celebrity culture. During this time, he worked for the National Portrait Gallery before moving to Hastings in East Sussex, to teach printmaking at Sussex Coast College (now East Sussex College) and become the Duty Manager of the newly established Jerwood Gallery (now Hastings Contemporary).

Four formative years were spent as a Visiting Professor in Expanded Media at Alfred University (New York State College of Ceramics) and Alfred State College of Technology, teaching across print-based mediums including core foundations programs, senior advising, and graduate mentorship

Recent residencies include Art Print Residence (Barcelona, Spain) and Proyecto’ace (Buenos Aires, Argentina), a lecture/workshop at PUCP (Pontificia Universidad Catòlica del Perú) in Lima, the Tamarind Institute (Albuquerque, NM), and the McColl Center (Charlotte, NC).


Technical Specialist, Print Media

Thomas J. Logan is an artist and printmaker. He received his BFA from Alfred University in Alfred, NY in 2018. He has numerous skills that cross the full range of printing technologies. Much of his work is fueled by a close look at the societal changes within intra-personal relationships and how our relationships influence us. Logan is a two-time winner in lithography for Speedball’s New Impressions competition and he has exhibited internationally at Gallery 517 in Beijing, China, and Plymouth Gallery in Plymouth, UK. His personal work is a cross-exploration between traditional and digital print practices with a focus on digital tools extending the visual language of traditional methods. As a Master Printer for Visiting Artists, he collaborates with resident artists through the multiples aspects of printmaking in the art making process – from conception, physical printing, and exchange.


Media & Technology Technician

Bernard Aaron Dolecki is an interdisciplinary artist, educator, and technophile from Jamestown, New York, who holds MFA in Emerging Practices from the University at Buffalo (UB). With a practice that spans multiple disciplines, he focused on delivering multi-user experiences through technology.

Since graduating, Bernard has been teaching at UB in the Department of Media Study with a teaching philosophy centered on community-driven experimentation. He says, “It was during the extreme isolation of the pandemic where I went through a deep introspection to find that my creative ideation flourishes through social collaboration.” Bernard’s current efforts lay in founding the Experimental Media Lab of WNY—a space for artists in the region to discuss critical social topics and create new media works towards ongoing group shows.
