"[Palizzolo's] recent artwork is something else. It’s pleasingly messy, a mix of acrylic paint, ceramic stucco and an iridescent medium, which she layers onto canvas in a mass of thick blocks and blobs of color. She uses palette knives in place of brushes and the resulting works are as much low reliefs as they are paintings." –Alex Hanson, Features Editor for the Valley News

"Like all worthy confections, they summon a frisson of guilt, as though even a single canvas were too much, too caloric, too sumptuous. The work is unapologetic and invites the viewer to embrace its (and maybe one's own inner) boldness. Bring it on, it says. To paraphrase Mark Twain, there are times when too much of a good thing may be barely enough." –Susan Apel, arts writer / critic
