Arts, crafts market set for weekend

CACHE  A Native American arts and craft market is set for Saturday and Sunday in downtown Cache.

The market will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day at 423 W. C Ave. The public is welcome. Indian tacos will be sold on Saturday only.

All Native American vendors are welcome. Booth fee is $10 per day; vendors must take their own tables.

Joyce Nevaquaya Harris of Anadarko will be the featured artist. She is the daughter of the noted Comanche artist and flutist Doc Tate Nevaquaya. Like her other talented siblings she continues to carry on the legacy of her father, said Eleanor McDaniel, event coordinator. Like her dad, she is a self-taught artist. Now she is known for her own style. 

"She finds inspiration from listening to songs and watching dancers at powwows and gatherings throughout Indian country," McDaniel said. "Joyce likes the use of color and her paintings start without a sketch. She allows her hand to flow and says sometimes it is unexplainable. She strives to show the heart of the person she is painting."
