A visitor commenting on our prints said that "there was something for everyone" in our collection, which I took as a great compliment.

We sold prints by Ruben Urea Moreno, Rudy FloresJellyfish, Los Dos, Tanya Rich, Matthew Poe, Francisco Delgado, and the next day, we sold a print by Martin Quintanilla.  We are trying to get a print by Jesus "Cimi" Alvarado to sell as well.
