Tribe seeks native artists for gallery

— TAHLEQUAH — The Cherokee Arts Center is currently seeking talented Native artists who would like to display their works in the center’s gallery located in downtown Tahlequah, 212 S. Water St.

Selected artwork will be displayed during the center’s grand opening June 8 and 9, which will be held in conjunction with Arts on the Avenue, a two-day festival that features regional art, music and wine.

“We want to show everyone the wonderful work of our very talented Cherokee artists,” Donna Tinnin, Cherokee Nation community tourism supervisor said in a media release. “By combining the grand opening with the Arts on the Avenue festival we hope to display the center’s unique and traditional artwork to visitors and collectors from across the region.”

The CAC is a newly opened facility that offers Cherokee artists a chance to display and sell their crafts.

To apply, the artist must be a Cherokee citizen and complete an application accompanied with pictures of his or her artwork no later than Friday. A panel of board members will review the applications and if selected, artwork should be dropped off at the gallery by 5 p.m. June 1. All types of mediums and imagery will be considered.
