Quotes

This event "reflects the progress that has been made" regarding the "Memorandum of Understanding Between The State of Maine and The Province of New Brunswick to Enhance the Mutual Benefits of Maine/New Brunswick Cultural Relations Through the Establishment of a Maine/New Brunswick Cultural Initiative" according to the release
"Rural U, since its inception, has seen rapid and exponential growth," states Scott Voisine, UMFK's Dean of Community Education, "This grant will provide for the continued development of the necessary infrastructure, program outcomes and assessment, and student-centered technology necessary to make the program a model for early post-secondary education in rural Maine and in other rural communities."
Richardson, a self-made artist of the past ten years, takes an exploratory approach to style, and says, "I am well aware that more than ever my art is reflecting the subconscious of that rambling entity I call a mind. I think it will be clear to viewers that I've been in a rather whimsical mood for a couple of years now."
