In the Galleries: University of Maryland Spotlights Six Former Students
"Something of an artistic class reunion, the University of Maryland Art Gallery’s Laid, Placed and Arranged showcases recent work by six people who studied at the school between 1990 and 2010." – Washington Post Review

“The work appears both spontaneous and meticulously planned. Drips, dribbles, and organic paint patterns are punctuated with mathematic precision and machine tooling. The overall effect is random and lyrical but far from accidental. I was immediately drawn to the works on their appearance alone, but after talking to Francie about her fascination with concepts relating to time and memory, her art became even more powerful to me.”
