TAHLEQUAH – Cherokee Nation Cultural Tourism is introducing a series showcasing the work of Cherokee artists.

The series will be offered from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the second Saturday of each month at the Cherokee National History Museum. Each month, a different artist will provide discussion and demonstration of their work, with some items available for sale.

The first artist talk will take place Feb. 8 and will feature Cherokee National Treasure Jane Osti.
Osti received the Cherokee National Treasure recognition in 2005 for her work preserving and promoting Southeastern style pottery. 

Mentored by the late Anna Belle Mitchell, Osti was one of the youngest to ever receive the esteemed title and only the second to be recognized for pottery, following in the footsteps of her mentor. Her award-winning work has been displayed in galleries and markets throughout the United States.

Osti continues her commitment to her Cherokee culture by honing her craft and perpetuating its continuation through teaching and mentorship opportunities.

The Cherokee National History Museum is located at 101 S. Muskogee Ave. It is open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
