Our Fall silver jewellery show, Barnacles to Butterflies, will be coming to an end on Saturday, October 13, 2012. If you haven't seen the pieces in person, come by the gallery for a visit before the weekend. If you can't get enough of unusual imagery in Northwest Coast art, we have many other creative sculptural pieces that may interest you. 

Kwakwaka'wakw artist Steve Smith has continuously provided us with playful small-scale sculptures, including this Dragonfly sculpture which rests on a bed of rocks. His brother, Rod Smith, also paints basswood sculptures like this elegant Loon and Coast Salish artist Doug Horne has an exquisite Seal and Heron cedar sculpture and Heron cedar spoon. We also have a beautifully carved and painted Loon, Heron and Hummingbird cedar panel with abalone inlay by Metis artist James Michels and a large-scale Butterfly painting by Heiltsuk artist Bradley Hunt. Come by the gallery to browse our collection and flip through our print bin - we have many other unusual pieces!
