Professor of Art Véronique Plesch is the guest assistant editor for the Fall 2019 issue of the Maine Arts Journal: UMVA Quarterly. Organized around special themes, the journal features essays by and about artists, interviews, submissions by members of the Union of Maine Visual Artists (UMVA), poetry, UMVA updates about local chapters and current projects, and more. In addition to two essays in the current issue (one co-authored, one on the Colby College Museum of Art’s current exhibition), Plesch wrote the introduction to the fall issue, on the theme of Appropriation.
