CN to host Native American art market in October
CATOOSA, Okla. – Art enthusiasts are expected to gather at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino as more than 130 Native American artists from across the country will display their work during the seventh annual Cherokee Art Market on Oct. 13-14.
Collectors and art lovers can view and purchase the world’s finest Native American artwork, representing more than 45 different tribes, in mediums such as beadwork, pottery, painting, basketry, sculptures and textiles during the market. Guests can also enjoy various cultural demonstrations and performances.
“The Cherokee Art Market has become one of the premier Native American art shows in the United States, which is a testament to the flourishing talent and abilities of the artists,” Principal Chief Bill John Baker said. “The show continues to provide Native American artists with a venue to feature their art and generate an income from a substantial number of art collectors and general enthusiasts from around the country.”
An awards reception will be held at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12 in the casino’s Sky Room in honor of the Cherokee Art Market winners. More than $75,000 in prize money will be awarded across 20 categories. The public is welcome to attend the awards reception. Tickets are available for $25 per person and will be available at the door.
More than 5,000 guests attended 2011’s art market and organizers are expecting an even greater turnout this year. The market is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Oct. 13 and 14. Admission to the market is $5 per person.
