1 The Chickasaw Nation will open an art exhibition and receptions Saturday. Beginning at 1 p.m. will be a reception for Chickasaw bladesmith artist Daniel Worcester and Cherokee painter Tom Farris at the ARTesian Gallery & Studios in Sulphur.
Worcester works with a variety of distinct objects to create his pieces. The handles of his knives have included silver utensils and billiard balls.
