Arion Rob Adams

Sometimes the dream comes before the piece begins, and other times it presents itself through the process of creation. Much like physical dreams, artistic dreams evolve over short periods of time. There are tangents that present themselves. David Santiago explores this process with charcoal, pastel and inks on panel. He will be staying at the Drury December 15-December 31, 2017.

Betty Padilla

Betty J. Padilla (Diné/Navajo) from Ganado, Arizona is a contemporary Native American jeweler. She resides in Santa Clara Pueblo with her husband and children.
