Richard Ryan, whose cinematic urban love-knot digital print was one of the many excellent pieces at the Arcadia Works on Paper show this year, will be showing another piece in the same series at Viridian Gallery’s 17th National Juried Exhibition, July 6-26. Ryan was one of 26 artists selected from more than 2,500 submissions by curator Robert Rosenblum of the Guggenheim Museum.
