Hello Virginia.  The Hilliard Museum will be doing an exhibition of some of my works in September.  Is there any way we can reproduce a part of the interview you did with me in the catalog.  I feel you touched on issues of my work in a unique way from anyone else. ... I just cannot imagine a catalog coming out of Lafayette without you being part of it.  Please let me know.  We are putting it together as we speed.  Thanks for your friendship and support.  I love and appreciate your special words.  Sharon (Sharon Kopriva, Artist) www.sharonkopriva.com

Hi Virginia, I have taken the liberty to recommend to my students that they look at your interviews.

Hopefully some of the readers will read what you wrote love it ! cr  (Carolyne Roehm - Internationally acclaimed Fashion Designer, Interiors and Garden Designer, Author of twelve books: At Home in the Garden, Flowers, A Passion for Interiors, A Passion for Blue and White, A Passion for Parties, Presentations, At Home with Carolyne Roehm, Summer Notebook, Fall Notebook, Winter Notebook, Spring Notebook and A Passion for Flowers.)

This interview and the artist's honest storytelling were a perfect balance of dialogue that truly enlightened the reader about the work discussed without being a disguised attempt to make the printed word equal to or more important than the paintings themselves. Your interviews are masterful. Bernard (Dr. Bernard Bonario, Professor of Art History, Renaissance and Baroque Art, University of St. Thomas.)

What an eloquent essay!  I love the manner in which your introduction sets the tone of your excavations, echoing your very beautiful and provocative title.  From your initial references to Fra Angelico through Rubens, Delacroix, and et al. to the sensuous closing of those to Baudelaire, the fabric of your essay is woven with beauty and intellectual rigor. John (Dr. John F. Hathorn, Professor, Department of Visual Arts, University of Louisiana at Lafayette)

your Frecon review is terrific – it’s so hard to describe abstract work and really delve into color, both of which you do beautifully in the piece. Which we circulated, including of course to Josef and Suzan.  You’re so good you should write for the NY Times – perhaps Art and Leisure editor Nancy Kenny would be responsive to a query…Best, in haste Vance (Vance Muse – The Menil Collection)
