Annette Price, foreground, palette in one hand and brush in the other, prepares to paint in her sun room/studio inside the family home in the Varina district of eastern Henrico County, VA Monday, May 18, 2020. Annette, wife of Terry Price, Chief of the Wolf Creek Cherokee Tribe, has been doing oil paintings of friends they have met at pow-wows over the years and is now working on portraits of family members she is painting onto a buffalo hide. For Terry Price, chief of the Wolf Creek Cherokee Tribe, and his wife, Annette Price, weekends often meant trips to Native American pow wows across Virginia and along the East Coast.
Price is working on a separate painting project involving old photographs of tribal ancestors, some dating back to the 1800s, which she and her husband have collected over the years. The photos are part of the collection at the Wolf Creek Cherokee Museum and Tribal Center on Osborne Turnpike that the Prices opened in 2015.
