On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of University of Maryland University College, I want to welcome you to this exhibit, Uncommon Ground: Three Maryland Artists. All of us at the university are pleased to have the art of Maura Maguire, Trace Miller, and Joan Stolz in our worldwide headquarters building.
For his effort and his many kindnesses in helping to organize this show, I would especially like to thank Irvin Greif. His generosity, his persistence, and his expertise have been a tremendous help to the university and its arts program in this endeavor.

"Although each of the three artists has a unique style and vision, the title for this exhibition hints at a shared source of inspiration: the natural world. As Kahlil Gibran wrote, art arises from this union of artistic vision and nature."
