Week of April 14


Richard Black PENELOPE’S WEB Media: Color intaglio Dimensions: 12 x 8 Price: $350.00 (source)

Visit Olson Larsen by Saturday to see prints from Richard Black as well as Joel Elgin, Austen Ortiz, Levi Robb, Jeanine Coupe Ryding, Alyssa Tauber and Larry Welo. And don’t miss them next week during Spring Gallery Night in Valley Junction.
