Art show and sale runs through Sept. 30 at Cherokee Heritage Center

TAHLEQUAH, OKLA.- The Cherokee National Historical Society announced the winners of the 22nd Annual Cherokee Homecoming Art Show at an awards reception Friday night.

Cherokee Nation citizen Daniel Horsechief was awarded the grand prize for his visual arts piece titled “Generations.”

“The piece was inspired by my mother and pays tribute to women and their role in our culture,” said Horsechief. “I’ve been participating in these shows for a long time, and I am honored and humbled to receive this award. To me, this recognition means sharing. Not only are we sharing a part of who we are as artists, but we’re taking on the responsibility of sharing the culture and art of the Cherokee people.”

The premier Cherokee art show features 115 pieces by 70 artists divided into two divisions: traditional and contemporary.

The traditional division is defined as “arts originating before European contact” and consists of three categories: basketry, pottery and traditional arts.

The contemporary division is defined as “arts arising among the Cherokee after European contact” and consists of seven categories: paintings, sculpture, pottery, basketry, beadwork, jewelry and textiles.

“This show is an incredible testament to the creativity, interpretative skills and quality of Cherokee artists, and we celebrate the opportunity to share their work with thousands of visitors during the Cherokee National Holiday,” said Dr. Charles Gourd, executive director of the Cherokee Heritage Center. “We want to thank all of the artists for their dedication to their craft and for their work that supports our mission to preserve, promote and teach Cherokee history and culture.”

Artists competed for a share of more than $10,000 in prize money, sponsored by Cherokee Nation Businesses.

First-place winners in each category are as follows:

• Traditional Arts: Roger Cain, “DeSoto’s Nightmare”
• Traditional Pottery: Crystal Hanna, “Iroquoian Influence”
• Contemporary Pottery: David Pruitt, “Fire and Water”
• Contemporary Basketry: Renee Hoover, “The Good Earth”
• Visual Arts: Jerry Sutton, “Sequoyah’s First Selfie”

• Beadwork: Carolyn Pallett, “Hills and Rivers”
