Re: “Connecting the Dots

I wish you all best wishes as you carry on John's great legacy! I hope you will also be a big supporter of all the talented local artists who need a lot of promotion in this economy! I especially invite you to visit Uptown Art Gallery at 1305 West Main, a Richmond area artist co-op, which is going into its 23rd year! Emma Lou Martin

Re: “Suzanne Hall To Retire From VMFA

Good for you, Suzanne, leaving a great job for another great one! Working with Randy has got to be as good as working with Alex. They have been and are so very blessed to have you! All best wishes to you. I hate to think of you leaving VMFA though.

Re: “Tireless Arts Leader, Beverly Reynolds, Has Died

I am so sad to hear this news. What a terrible blow to the Richmond art scene and our Main Street! I am thrilled for her that she knew the VCU Contemporary Art Museum was to be named for her...Well deserved!

Re: “Misplaced Masterpieces

How very sad to hear this happened to this amazing art. Perhaps at least some can find a permanent home at VMFA. I am familiar with these artists, studied briefly with AB Jackson as well as Barclay Sheaks, and think the work should be placed in top collections. Maybe some could be sold through top galleries to contribute funds to art programs in the public schools. Art is the reflection of the civilization that produces it, and creativity inspired by the arts is the basis for all successful scientific, governmental, mathematical, etc. achievements. I just feel strongly that we all need art in our lives and no collection should languish in storage.

Re: “They Make Arts Districts, Don't They?

West Main Street...A great arts district with unique galleries...Of special note is Uptown Gallery at 1300 between Randolph and Brunswick. It was begun by the Metropolitan Artists Association 20 years ago under the direction of Emma Lou Martin and Stuart White as a Richmond area co-op gallery. Through the month of April Emma Lou Martin is featured with George Crawford. Here you can see the micro/macro views of nature with George's landscapes in oil and Emma Lou's collages of bits and pieces from the natural world including snake skins, feathers, and plant materials on hand-made papers, including African elephant dung paper! Also at Uptown, through April is a show by artists from the newly formed Virginal Pastel Society.

Re: “Letter: Liu Xia and a Curator’s Dream

This is an exhibit not to be missed. What a sad story accompanies this exhibit! China wants the world to think it is open and yet these photographs had to be smuggled out of the country to be shown in the West! Thank you for the article. The opening with a panel discussion about Liu Xia and her art was truly a gift. Emma Lou Martin

    Why did an important RPS art collection possibly worth thousands languish in storage?
