Art Market

In 2019, one of America’s fastest-growing American Indian art markets saw more than 11,000 attendees and featured 125 elite American Indian artists from 19 different tribes.

The market offers a diverse art media and a vast selection of visual art including paintings, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, beadwork, textiles, basketry and metalwork. Enjoy a wide variety of tribal dance demonstrations, musical entertainment, artist talks, food vendors and children’s activities.

Located on the beautiful Artesian Plaza in downtown Sulphur, Oklahoma, the Artesian Arts Festival is nestled among the Artesian Hotel and Casino, the Artesian Gallery and Studios, the Chickasaw National Recreation Area and numerous boutiques and shops.
