Martin A. David
Martin A. David is a true Renaissance Man. Martin, self-proclaimed “Arts Practitioner”, has a long career in visual arts, writing, theatre, and crafts.
“I see the arts as a large mansion,” he says, “and my desire is to play in as many of the rooms in that mansion as I can.”
He is a published writer of newspaper and magazine articles, columns, poetry, and essays, as well as author of a number of books and plays. He earned his theatre degree from New York’s Brooklyn College in 1961 and has worked as an actor, director, and acting teacher. From 1966 to 1976 he toured Europe as a modern dancer and choreographer. David also designs and crafts his own line of unique jewelry for sale in the Artisan Gallery.

Shaun T. Griffin
Shaun T. Griffin, local Virginia City artist, poet, and activist, shares watercolors and poems in this compelling and powerful Border Stories exhibition.
“As I started to work on these paintings (and long beforehand), I pulled articles and pictures from the paper when I was stopped cold by their urgency—whether or not I could paint them. I knew they were a compelling link to their humanity—and that’s what gets lost. We forget these are people first, without qualifiers of country, of origin.
They helped remind me I could not forget their faces, however inconceivably torn from what they left behind. ”
— Shaun T. Griffin
The first Border Series debut was at St. Mary's Art Center, Shaun's newest additions were unveiled with the Nevada Humanities in 2021-22. View the beautiful Nevada Humanities online exhibition here.
