In Memory of Cherokee Artist Talmadge Davis

Talmadge Davis was an award winning artist whose paintings evoked powerful emotions and deep appreciation for his artwork. The preservation of Cherokee heritage and its ancient history was one of the driving forces behind his art. Davis exhibited his paintings as a part of the annual art shows at the Cherokee Heritage Center since 2000. Originally born in Oklahoma, Talmadge served in the US Army from 1982-1987 including serving in Germany. Talmadge won many awards throughout the country for his art including: Tulsa Indian Festival, Wichita Indian Market, Southwest Classic Art Show and a multiple winner for Best in Category and Peoples Choice at the Cherokee Heritage Center.

The Staff and Board of Trustees of the Cherokee National Historical Society, Inc., would like to pass along our thoughts and prayers to Talmadge’s family and friends. We will miss his charming personality and exquisite artwork.
