The gallery at the Oconaluftee Institute for Cultural Arts will feature an exhibition of paintings by artist TJ Holland during the month of February.
Holland’s work explores Cherokee myths and legends. He is enrolled member of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and a member of the Snowbird community.
“TJ’s work harkens back to that of the masters, such as Caravaggio or Rembrandt,” state OICA program coordinator Jeff Marley. “It gives us a new perspective on Cherokee legends.”
The exhibition runs from Feb. 2-29 and is free and open to the public. A reception will be held 5 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 9.
The Oconaluftee Institute for Cultural Arts is located on Highway 19 North, behind Tribal Bingo at 70 Bingo Loop in Cherokee.
