Fall Exhibitions

This fall, there are plenty of shows and exhibitions featuring Northwest Coast artists and their works, both traditional and contemporary. Some are right here in Vancouver, and there are some nearby still, so if you have any spare time, it might be worth visiting a few.

Sonny Assu,
Longing, West Vancouver Museum,
September 14th - November 5th

Artist will give a talk on October 19th, 7:00pm.

This installation uses wood stumps as sculpture,
conceptually displayed as masks, and within photography to suggest an art and culture lost and displaced by colonialism.
