Steve Smith Ball Cap

We featured a new and modern yellow cedar panel by Steve Smith in our recent Summer 2010 Newsletter, and we were happy to receive this work shortly after we received the panel. Embellished with Steve's trademark designs, this baseball cap is an exceptional example of how Steve continues to challenge the meaning and understanding of Northwest Coast Native art. To quote Steve from our Summer 2010 Newsletter:

"When working on any piece of art, my main objective is to create something different than what we know or recognize as Northwest Coast Native art. Incorporating designs where one might not expect to see them or filling spaces with atypical elements are just a few ways of doing that."
