TAHLEQUAH, Okla. – Entries are being accepted for the sixth annual Cherokee National Holiday Art Show and Sale, which is set for Labor Day weekend. Deadline for entering artwork is Aug. 10.

Artists will compete for $12,000 in prize money in 12 categories: traditional, contemporary pottery, paintings, drawings and graphics, photography, sculpture, contemporary basketry, textiles and weaving and diverse arts.

Youth ages 1-8, 9-13 and 14-18 are also invited to enter their artwork.

“We have expanded the youth category this year and broken the ages down a little more, offering more prize money for the youth, which are our future,” Marie Smith, art show coordinator, said.

To enter, an artist must be a citizen of a federally recognized tribe and may submit one piece per category in a maximum of two categories. Artwork entered must have been created within the last year and be ready for display.

The art show will be displayed at the Tahlequah Armory Municipal Center at 100 N. Water Ave. It opens at 1 p.m. on Aug. 31, and winners will be named that night. The artwork will remain on display from 10 a.m. on Sept. 1 to 5 p.m. on Sept. 2.

The show is part of the events happening at the 60th Cherokee National Holiday, a festival that attracts more than 90,000 visitors annually to celebrate the tribe’s signing of its 1839 constitution and an Act of Union that formally joined three factions of the tribe into one nation. The holiday showcases the best of Cherokee art, food, music, crafts, sports, culture and history.

For an art entry form or for more information about the art show, email marie-smith@cherokee.org or call 918-453-5524.
