Hundreds of artists and art enthusiasts will be in Lawrence tonight for the opening of the 15th annual Lawrence Indian Arts Show. A benefit reception kicks off the juried exhibition at the Lawrence Arts Center, and the show, which features more than 130 works by American Indian artists across the country, remains on view through Oct. 11.
The public can meet many of those artists and buy their work at the Haskell Indian Art Market. The two-day art festival is Saturday and Sunday on the campus of Haskell Indian Nations University.
In conjunction with the Indian Arts Show, a group of local Native American quilters are displaying their winter count quilts at the Lawrence Public Library through the end of the month.
And at South Park on Sunday, the Fall Arts & Crafts Festival will feature more than 150 vendors from Kansas and beyond. Artists and craftspeople working in every medium will hawk their wares at the annual market.
