 WORK FOR SALE 

There will be a few things available for sale; however, this open house is not envisioned as a major purchasing opportunity, so much as a chance for Brian to visit with you in his workspace and for you to see works in all stages of progress.

There will not be refreshments, however, we recommend lunch before and/or dinner afterwards at Pizzeria 712 in Orem.  It has excellent food and hangs exceptional art which is in fact for sale - really good art.  Really.  Also recommended: Chom, Communal, Bombay House, Bam Bams Barbecue, El Mexsal, Cafe 300, Taqueria San Marcos, etc.
