The year 2020 has brought many changes to some of the biggest Native American art events around the country, including the 15th annual Cherokee Art Market. The show was to be held in October at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma but has shifted to a virtual platform from December 7 to 21, just in time for the gift-giving season. The show will happen on the Cherokee Art Market website and collectors from all around the world can explore the artwork.
“I feel that the upside [to moving to a virtual platform] is that we’ll get a greater audience,” says Deborah Fritts, coordinator of Cherokee Art Market. “People who have heard of the show but haven’t been able to attend in person or maybe [those] who haven’t heard of the market will be able to pull up our website and see the amazing artwork that we have from our juried artists. I’m hoping that it will be open to a new audience.”
