We are very excited to have a diverse selection of new panels in the gallery by artists Clinton Work (Kwakwaka'wakw), Dean Hunt (Heiltsuk), James Michels (Metis), and Alano Edzerza (Tahltan).
|Clinton Work, Red Cedar Panel, Abstract design, 30" Diameter x 2", $3,200.00 CAD|
This unique panel by Clinton Work depicts a cropped Abstract design featuring a slight notion of a Human face in the top right half of the panel. The piece is carved in red cedar and finished with a mixture of carbon powder and furniture wax, leaving it with an understated softness. Every surface of the panel has been knife-finished, which gives the piece added dimension and texture. This piece measures 30” Diameter x 2” and is available for $3,200.00 CAD.
|Dean Hunt, Red Cedar Panel, Time Traveller, 25 1/2" x 21 1/2" x 1 7/8", $2,500.00 CAD|
Dean Hunt’s panel is inspired by a mid-19th century Heiltsuk bentwood box painted by Captain Carpenter and features a Human figure. The twelve white feathers along the top of the panel represent the twelve moons. This panel, titled Time Traveller, measures 25 ½” x 21 ½” x 1 7/8” and is available for $2,500.00 CAD.
|James Michels, Red Cedar Panel,. Eagle design, 27" Diameter, $2,600.00 CAD|
