Featured artist

Rachel Olsen holds her watercolor painting entitled Coneflower Comfort, in Richfield, Friday.

The Staples Art Gallery’s featured Artist of the Month for November is watercolorist Rachel Olsen.

During the years Olsen has lived in Richfield, she has enjoyed the association of other artists painting outdoors in the beauty of Sevier County.

“Fall is my favorite time to sketch and paint because color is everywhere,” said Olsen. “From butter yellow melting down the mountainsides, gold reflecting sunlit aspens in the little streamlets to backyard luscious red apples waiting to be harvested.”

The Staples Art Gallery is free to the public, and is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3 to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m. through Saturday, Dec. 22, or by appointment by calling (435) 527-4267. Staples Art Gallery is located at 15 East 200 North, Elsinore.

Staples Art Gallery is filled with the varied art of nine artists consisting of oil paintings, acrylic paintings, watercolor paintings, walking sticks, tatting, puzzles, dolls and more.
