Brett and "Deer Dancer"

I met Brett Chomer at the Buffalo Thunder Resort and Casino located just outside Santa Fe, where we went to see the art work positioned throughout the building. We chatted with Brett who was doing the annual cleaning and buffing of "Deer Dancer," a creation of artist George Rivera, who is also the Governor of Pueblo Pojoaque.  Brett is an artist himself and often helps complete the sculptures after Rivera has completed the designs and small figure-versions for the larger sculpted pieces. The contemporary and traditional pieces of art scattered throughout the complex is definitely worth a trip.
