Standing Rock Cultural Arts would like to congratulate Edwin George on receiving an Individual Artist Fellowship from the Ohio Arts Council in 2005. This fellowship recognizes artists of exceptional quality and rewards them for past work. Only around 8% of those who apply receive grants.

State Representative Kathleen Chandler recently stopped by The North Water Street Gallery in Kent to congratulate Edwin George on receiving a 2005 Ohio Arts Council Individual Artist Fellowship. Edwin is one of Ohio's leading folk artists and currently resides in Kent.

Edwin is a full blooded Eastern Band Cherokee whose paintings tell stories that relate to his Native American ancestry. He is available for storytelling to any group and especially enjoys relating to children. He currently resides in Kent, Ohio.

Standing Rock would also like to acknowledge the significance of Edwin's work because t provides such a wealth of experience to our community; educationally, culturally and economically.

Edwin is especially honored and would like to offer sincere apprection for those in public office who work to support the Arts.
