Come to Historic Pawhuska and enjoy our history, culture and the arts. We are the 'Real West', the arts, culture and history destination on the Tallgrass Prairie.
From October 31st to November 5th, Tallgrass Art Gallery in Historic Pawhuska will salute the artists we are so proud to represent with a 'Artists Week'. We now represent 36 of some of the best wildlife, western and Native American artists and fine craftspeople in the region. We are proud of their contributions to the arts and the gallery.
As a gallery owner, I am constantly amazed at the works that are brought into the gallery, and the enthusiasm they have for Pawhuska. In the last year and a half, we have shown some of the best Wildlife, Western and Native American Art on the Tallgrass Prairie. As Pawhuska continues to move forward as the arts and culture destination on the Tallgrass Prairie, we can't wait to see what new items our artists bring us.
Please join us from October 31st to November 5th as we salute the artists of Tallgrass. Artists will be present demonstrating their work. Refreshments will be served daily and new works will be in the gallery. We look forward to sharing this experience with all our guests.
