Toshiba - Automatic Toner Replenishment Program

Reminder: Procurement Services has switched all of the networked Toshiba and Lexmark MFPs (copiers) on campus to an automatic toner replenishment program. This means departments will no longer have to order MFP toner cartridges. When your MFP is down to 20% usage, it will message Toshiba to send a new toner. Your toner will be sent free of charge. When your toner is received, please wait until your MFP is out of toner before replacing the cartridge. There may still be toner left in your cartridge, and we want to ensure toner will not be wasted.

This is only for networked and contracted Toshiba and Lexmark MFPs. This program does not include any desktop printers. Please contact Procurement Services for any questions or concerns.

Cristina Cordova: La Jungla & Mysteries of Place

Friday, February 2 -Sunday, July 29, 2018

Opening Reception: February 2, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Alfred Ceramic Art Museum


An exhibition of sculpture and drawings by Cristina Cordova. Cristina's figurative work has established her as one of the preeminent ceramic artists of her generation. Her work renders the figure as a mysterious, sensual force of compelling urgency. Her masterful use of the ceramic medium empowers her work with a mesmerizing, at times uncanny presence.

Mysteries of Place

In collaboration with the Institute of Electronic Media, School of Art and Design, Alfred University, has resulted in the magnificent exhibition Mysteries of Place: The Cahaba River Project, prints by Elisabeth Pellathy, Lee Somers and Scott Stephens. This collaboration lies at the core of the Museum's exhibition policy, which acknowledges works in all media. We are pleased to exhibit the work of these particular artists who have strong connections to Alfred University.
