The Citizen Potawatomi Nation Art Show is set for April 5-6, 2012 and will feature art from Citizen Potawatomi Nation tribal members from around the world. The show runs from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday at the Citizen Potawatomi Nation Cultural Heritage Center.
“This is an opportunity to showcase the tremendous talent that we have within our tribe,” said Kelli Mosteller, director, Cultural Heritage Center. “Native American art generates a broad appeal and for many of our artists this will be the only opportunity they have to show and sell their artwork.”
Art forms displayed and sold will include beadwork, pottery, painting, basketry, sculptures and textiles. Admission is free and the art show is open to the public.
“This is an opportunity for people to come and see Potawatomi art and to learn about our culture,” added Mosteller. “Many of these artists have learned a craft that has been passed down several generations and represents our culture and heritage.”
Artist interested in showing or selling art should call (405)-878-5830 for more information and to reserve a spot.
