Here’s what people are saying about the Cherokee Art Market:
“The Cherokee Art Market is a wonderful event for the entire family! We experienced multi-generational family moments as my parents and grandsons joined me at our booth. We enjoyed sharing cultural stories with all ages attending the art show through my Cherokee pottery pieces.”
-Debbie McGlasson, Cherokee, Vinita, OK The Cherokee Art Market has become one of the best Markets in Indian country. The art is of top quality from the best-known Indian Artists of our time. The show gained exceptional class and style when it moved to the new facility within the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa, Oklahoma.
-Nelda Schrupp, Nakota, Lakota, ND I attend 8-10 major shows a year throughout the Southwest, and the Cherokee Art Market in the Fabulous Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa ranks no.1 on my list of best-run shows. The staff and volunteers were exceptional and the juried competition was outstanding! I look forward to next year.
-Bill Williams, Cherokee, Norman, OK The Cherokee Indian Art Market is one of the classiest shows I have done. The quality of artists attending, the staff and volunteers, and the commitment of the Cherokee Casino make this event a show I am very proud to be part of.
-Jackie Sevier, Northern Arapaho, Seneca, NE2009 was my fourth year as an artist participating in CAM. Many artists (myself included) were in total agreement that the quality of art available, visitor attendance and sales was way above and beyond expectations. CAM being moved inside gave the art and artists a much appreciated more professional appearance. The staff was in overtime trying to make everything work smoothly. Each one willing to assist where and when needed. They were (as usual) wonderful! Make plans to attend CAM 2010...You won't be disappointed.
-Verna Bates, Cherokee, Locust Grove, OK www.gourdsetc.netI have been part of many major art markets across the country and the Cherokee Art Market is right up there with the best. The Artist reception and the way they treat the artist is great. They advertise real well, which made for great attendance. Many of the best Native American artists in the country were part of the Market.
-Eddie Morrison, Cherokee, Tahlequah, OK Thank you for allowing me to be a part of the 2009 Cherokee Art Market. It was a stroke of genius, to allow newer artists like myself, to be among the more well known artists of our day. Everyone had an equal chance of being seen by the public. What an opportunity it was, to meet these great artists of our day! It was a great honor for me to meet Anna Mitchell. She may not remember me but I will always remember our conversation. It was a great experience for me.
-Risi Thelander, Cherokee, Sperry, OK"We very much enjoyed the 2009 Cherokee Art Market. We want to say 'thank you' to all the employees that made the Market a success. It was a very positive experience!"
