“I remain as moved and awed today(as so many others do) at Ella Fountain’s inexhaustible passion for excellence, for the blessed gifts which only the arts can bring, and especially for her insistence on bringing–whenever possible, by hook or by crook–the young into her offerings.” –Reynolds Price
“Ella Fountain’s natural sensitivity serves as midwife to poets, painters, dancers, weavers, sculptors and dreamers.” –Jaki Shelton Green
