The Haywood County Arts Council in downtown Waynesville has announced July’s exhibition, titled “We are Still Here: Eastern Band of Cherokee.”

Additionally, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Saturday, there will be artists’ demonstrations by the participating exhibition artists: July 3 Gabe Crowe (baskets), July 10 Alica Wildcatt (jewelry), July 17 Loria A.
