Earl Muldon - Order of Canada

Lattimer Gallery has been promoting and carrying the work of prolific Gitksan artist Earl Muldon for over twenty years. Having carved innumerable totem poles, created the monumental entrance doors for Vancouver's Museum of Anthropology (with several other renowned Gitksan artists), and lead a restoration project for the Gitanyow (Kitwancool) Hereditary Chiefs, Earl has an endless number of accomplishments under his belt...and he is still creating wonderful works. In fact, Lattimer Gallery featured a wonderful Birch mask by Earl in our Spring 2010 Newsletter.

Earl recently won the Lifetime Achievement Award for Aboriginal Art from the provincial government's Achievement Foundation. In June of this year, he also received membership to the exclusive Order or Canada, becoming one of the few Northwest Coast artists to ever receive this award. We are happy to see Earl gain some much deserved recognition. While Earl is still carving wood occasionally, we mainly carry his popular silver and gold jewellery. Please check our website to see the pieces we have available.
