By Press Release


The Hive Paonia Art Gallery will exhibit paintings by Marvin Swallow, Sundance and Ceremonial Chief in the Lakota Tradition, from Feb. 19 to April 15.

Marvin Swallow paints "images of time before and after the moment," whispering sacred stories of the beauty and mystery of creation.
