OKLAHOMA CITY – Original work by artists from across Oklahoma will be featured in a Native American Art Show during the semi-annual sidewalk sale, July 24-25 at The Shoppes at Northpark.
The show will be hosted by Private Collections, located in the Studios at North Gallery and Studio.
“So many festivals and powwows are being canceled because of the pandemic, so I’m trying to provide an opportunity for artists to sell their work in as safe an environment as we can provide, with cool temperatures and social distancing,” said Cheryl Harder, who owns Private Collections along with her husband, Allan, and fellow Native American art collector Jim Barnett.
Oil and acrylic paintings and prints, jewelry, designer clothing, basketry and beaded works will be featured in the show, to be held in conjunction with the indoor sidewalk sale at Northpark. Shopping hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and masks are encouraged.
Many of the artists are affiliated with the nonprofit cultural organization Red Earth, Inc., and include Dana Tiger and her children, Christie and Lisan Tiger, Clancy Gray, Joy White, Stephen White, Jon Tiger, Cynthia Yerby, Steven Scissortail Morales of Whirlwind Tails and Jackie Tointigh, also known as Blackhorse.
The theme of the sidewalk sale is Christmas in July. It will feature Santa, live music and food trucks along with the mall’s own restaurants and bakery.
Private Collections will be open during the sale, Cheryl Harder said. For more information about Private Collections or the Native American Art Show, call Harder at 405-615-4566.
