The Southeastern Art Show and Market (SEASAM) and SEASAM Youth has been part of the Chickasaw Annual Meeting and Festival since 2005. SEASAM and SEASAM Youth provide a unique marketplace where adult and youth artists from federally recognized Southeastern tribes can flourish. The competition portion of the market includes category awards, division awards and a Best of Show award for adults and judges' awards, division awards and a Best of Show award for youth.
Allowing for the continuation of connecting patrons with one-of-a-kind and exciting First American art and artists, our 2020 and 2021 SEASAM competitions and markets were moved to a virtual format for the safety of artists and patrons.
We are very excited that the 2022 Southeastern Art Show and Market and SEASAM Youth will once again be in-person and part of the Chickasaw Annual Meeting and Festival. The market will take place in Tishomingo, Oklahoma on Sept. 30 and Oct. 1.
