Works of Native American artists featured in exhibit at Arts Council


The works of 18 artists are featured in “Still Here, Still Native: A Native American Art Exhibit” on display through Nov. 27 at the Arts Council of Fayetteville-Cumberland County.

The exhibit is in recognition of Native American Heritage Month in November, according to an Arts Council news release.

The exhibit is a partnership with the Office of Indian Education of Cumberland County Schools, the news release said.

The display, which opened Oct. 27, is at the Arts Center, 301 Hay St. in downtown Fayetteville. Admission is free, the release said.

The exhibit features historical and iconic native-based artworks that address the perspectives of the Native American and indigenous communities in North Carolina. Works include paintings, sculptures, artifacts, regalia, quill and bead embroidery, and textiles, the release said.

“The Arts Council is committed to supporting and sharing the stories of the Native American people through their own perspective,” curator Savanna Davis said in the news release. “It may be common practice to display Indigenous artwork and crafts alongside dinosaur bones, but these artists prove that Native American art and culture is ‘still here.’”

Since 1990, November has been set aside as Native American Heritage Month across the United States.
