Dennis Olsen at Gallery 10

Dennis Olsen: Prints and Porcelains

Gallery 10
1519 Connecticut Avenue
Hours: Wed - Sat 11 - 5
March 5 through the end of March

A show worth seeing. The works are complex, multi-layered, mysterious and fine.





















At the opening, a man, an artist, commented to me:
"this is the best show I have seen in Washington this year - museum quality, superior work, really deep, offering you skill and more."



Dennis Olsen teaches at the University of Texas at San Antonio and is President of the Santa Reparata Art School in Florence, Italy.

Here he is explaining the process for his monotypes to photographer, Margaret Paris and sculptor, Nancy Frankel. Olsen's teaching shows through in his easy pleasure in talking with people about his work.
