Native American artists Jay Benham (Kiowa) and John Well-Off-Man (Chippewa-Cree) will exhibit their work at Medicine Lodge, a three-day art show with talks by a Kiowa elder and art collector Bill Wiggins, at Ultra Studios, 118 W. South St. in Fayetteville. Hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.

On Saturday, elder Tom Tonemah of Mountain View will speak on the history of the Kiowa in Oklahoma at 3 p.m. Wiggins, whose vast collection of work by American, Canadian and Inuit artists, is housed at the Sequoyah Research Center on the UALR campus, will talk about the artist-collector relationship and what to expect at major markets and galleries at 4 p.m. There will be an artists' reception from 5-7 p.m.

To gain admission, donate cash in any amount, toys, clothing or non-perishable food items for Lifesource International, a Fayetteville non-profit for families in need. Thirty percent of the proceeds of sales will also go to Lifesource.
