Vernet to Villon

I wrote a story about the local art museum's most recent art exhibit and had the funnest time chatting about drawings with art professor Victor Koshkin-Youritzin. He sent me a thank you email after the story ran and it made me smile:
Dear Hannah, 
I cannot thank you enough for the splendid article you wrote in the June 8th Norman Transcript about the exhibition I organized for OU's Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, "Vernet to Villon: Nineteenth-Century French Master Drawings from the National Gallery of Art."  I not only deeply appreciate the time you so kindly took to interview me. but also your commitment to accurate reporting in your thoughtful , excellently written article.   And the visual impact of your coverage was stunning!  We had an overflow, standing-room-only crowd at my lecture that evening and about 500 people at the reception that followed, thanks in significant part for your and the Norman Transcript's extensive and so generous coverage of the event.  On behalf of the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, please accept my--and our--deepest gratitude!  I shall send a copy of your article to the National Gallery for their files.  You might be pleased to know that our show's catalogue is not only being sold through the FJJMA's gift shop, but also though the NGA's bookstore, which has placed our book on their website. 
I hope that you and your husband have a wonderful summer! 
With gratitude, and with all my warmest best wishes to you and to everyone else at the Norman Transcript who may have been involved in allowing us to receive such beautiful, effective coverage,
