Tribes 131 is located in Norman, Oklahoma and is considered a treasure where people can indulge themselves in the history, culture and celebration of Native American art. A fixture in Norman since 1990, Tribes has evolved into a much broader range of styles and mediums than when it first opened, and has been described as a visual feast where within the walls one will find historical, abstract, contemporary, traditional and pop art original paintings.
A vast array of pottery, baskets, textiles, beadwork, bronzes, alabaster carvings, cultural items, books, contemporary and traditional hand crafted jewelry can also be found here.
The original Tribes was located in downtown Norman on Main Street for 16 years. That location was closed and a year later launched at its current location of 131 24th Avenue NW, in Norman. Tribes Gallery was developed out of need for a local outlet for the artists, it has grown beyond just a space where people can see art because there is so much more going on inside.
Up and coming artists are afforded the opportunity to grow and gain valuable information for a professional career while working beside some of the most seasoned and recognized artists in the industry.
