A Must See!

       Internationally and locally-renowned Sandy Swallow-Morgan artistic passion began in mid life, as she experimented with oils and watercolors while living on a ranch near Pine Ridge. Being self-taught, Sandy created art capturing her spiritual connection to nature, home, and family. Sandy is most well known for her hand-pulled block printmaking. This painstaking medium provides her with the ability to create dramatic pieces saturated with deep earth and pastel colors which evoke traditional Native American symbols and images from the natural world.  Many of her hand pulled prints depict images of home, as with tipis, which symbolize family, security, and love. Further, her prints convey a soothing, peaceful quality which enhance any living or work space.

Main Street in Hill City, SD.

Sandy invites you to theSandy Swallow Gallery for a rewarding experience in Indian Art & Culture.
