"Holly Alderman's work is a wonderful combination of modern and post-modern elements, as she creatively combines past and present, giving us multi-layered views of diverse worlds, that include the Renaissance, the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. Her view is refreshing, poignant and magical." -- Katherine Hoffman, Ph.D., Chair of Fine Arts, St. Anselm College
