  1. Excellent work, UMW artists. A special shout out to our COE students for their outstanding work! Well done all around, thank you Ken Little and UMW Galleries for sharing!

  2. Thank you so much to Ken Little and UMW Galleries for everything you guys have done for us! I’m so blessed this gallery could bring so much joy to all of the people who are viewing it~ Everyone contributing to this project should be so proud, I love my talented peers and I can’t wait to see you all again one day!

  3. Many thanks to Ken, John, and all the talented students for making this exhibition possible. I am grateful to see your creativity on display – this has truly lifted my spirits!

  4. This has brightened my day seeing everyone’s art. I’m swelling with pride. You all deserve so much praise for all of the hard work you’ve put in and while it is a bummer we can’t experience it in person, PLEASE KNOW that this is resounding with people everywhere. I am so proud of all of the artists. I cannot wait to see more from them.

  5. Congratulations to everyone who’s work is being showcased along with everyone who applied. It’s such a humble feeling to still be presented in a visual tour. A big thank you to all persons involved in making this magical thing happen! I’m so proud of everyone.

  6. What a wonderful collection of art! I am well and truly impressed by the level of talent on display. Congratulations on a job well done. I agree that an autumn show is in order so that these pieces can be appreciated in person.

  7. It’s so exciting to see this exhibition during these isolating times, I’m very glad that we can all still stay connected. I’m super impressed with the talent at our University and I can’t wait to see how far everyone will take their talents in the future! Keep up the great work!

  8. Congratulations to everyone involved in this show. It’s a great example of what great people and great art can do. Thanks and renewed congratulations to each and all!

    And I second Dean Rucker’s suggestion that it would be great to be able to see these works–and congratulate these gifted artists–in person in the fall!

  9. Big thank you to Ken Little and the hardworking UMW Galleries, especially Sarah Lapp, for making this show still possible. I’m so proud of everyone in this show.

  10. What beautiful pieces! Kudos to the artists. I hope they know that even though it’s not quite the same as viewing them in person, many more people will get the chance to enjoy them because they are being shared this way.

  11. Prof. McMillan,

    Thanks for this gift to my morning. I loved this presentation of our student’s talents. I am ever impressed with the range of their creativity and artistic expression. I know that this is a virtual show, but is there a way to bring these pieces together in the fall? I know that there are many who would love to see them. I recall the exhibition on the first floor of the University Center, and how powerful it was to be drenched in the talents of our students, even when casually walking through. How powerful would that be to start the fall!!!

    Kudos to you and your colleagues for every inspiring our students gifts to excellence!

    Dean Rucker
