"Of the two exhibitions, the enchanting collages at Colby take prime place, not only because they have never before been presented en bloc, but also because they have a fresh, childlike vision quite unlike the cool, worldly approach of Mr. Katz's work today."
Grace Glueck in The New York Times, September 9, 2005
"The range of work here is staggering, from simple, almost elementary charcoal-like renderings to exuberant digital relief prints."
Bob Keyes on Terry Winters: Prints & Sequences in Maine Sunday Telegram, August 7, 2005
"When all is said and done, Richard Serra's 4-5-6 is a late modernist masterpiece, "Modernism and Abstraction" [a visiting exhibition on loan from the Smithsonian] is a survey course in 20th-century art, and the Colby College Museum of Art is the jewel in the crown of the Maine art scene."
Edgar Allen Beem in Maine Times, September 14, 2000
"As someone who attended a college where a semester spent unraveling the myths depicted by a Renaissance painting seen only in reproduction was considered an ideal use of your time, I envy students at colleges like Colby, who have the chance to experience great art in person, on a daily basis."
Christine Temin in The Boston Globe, September 6, 2000
"The Colby College Museum of Art, founded in 1959, has rapidly become--with three major additions over the last decade--the largest in the state. It houses a deep and varied collection of American art, covering three centuries, in 28,000 square feet of elegant gallery space.... In short, a place that’s going places."
Grace Glueck in The New York Times, September 1, 2000
"The Colby Museum of Art has ... turned what was a modest gallery into one of the best college museums in the country and one of the most extensive art museums in northern New England. Through the years the museum has acquired an outstanding collection and has created striking exhibition spaces. It has succeeded in its dual role as a college museum and as a significant cultural resource for the residents of and visitors to the state of Maine. And it is only beginning to reach its potential."

"The Colby collection traces the development of American art and is so diverse that a visit there is like taking an art history course.... In addition to its phenomenal collection, the layout, design and lighting are the best in Maine by far. This is a museum that does not simply welcome visitors, it makes them feel at home."
