Read what the press is saying about Emmy Lou Packard: Artist of Conscience at Richmond Art Center:

48 Hills

“Ultimately, there is a certain joy in the perennial re-discovery of unknown artists like Packard. And there couldn’t be a more perfect venue for her work than the Richmond Art Center: a hidden treasure in the Bay Area, teeming with activity, free, and open to the people.” – Natalia Kresich, 48 Hills

Square Cylinder

“Absent the critical recognition withheld in her lifetime, it’s rewarding that this show resonates loudly.” – Diana Scott, Square Cylinder

San Francisco Chronicle

“…a timely exhibition…” – Tony Bravo, San Francisco Chronicle

The Activist (Richmond Progressive Alliance)

“What looks like non-political work is deeply rooted in her [Emmy Lou Packard’s] politics of equality and her belief in the importance of art in daily life.” – Rick Tejada-Flores, The Activist

KPFA La Raza Chronicles

“We recommend people check it out.” – Julieta Kusnir, KPFA La Raza Chronicles

El Tecolote

“…the power of her art and life’s work is undeniable.” – Anna Hoch-Kenney, El Tecolote
