You have just a few more hours to see one of the largest and most beautiful shows of the year, “Masters of Disguise III”! We will begin to uninstall the works tomorrow, so that we may have ample installation time for our July exhibit, “Hib Sabin: The Long Game”. A latecomer to the show is […]
Details, details… We’re in the editing phase of production on Hib Sabin’s new exhibition catalog. The catalog–in both print and digital forms–will debut alongside his solo exhibition, “The Long Game” this July. All photography was shot in-house by our fabulous freelancer Ashley Genevieve, and the introductory essay is by our writer and designer, Sarra Scherb. […]
It’s with much gratitude that we show the sculpture of Alaska-based artist Lena Snow Amason-Berns (Alutiiq) in our “Masters of Disguise III” exhibition this year. Those who are familiar with contemporary Alaskan artists will recognize the name Amason from her father, painter and sculptor Alvin Amason. Lena has carved and painted a gorgeous plank mask-style wall […]

Troy hails from the north end of Vancouver Island, and is descended from chiefs of the Weiwakum First Nation. His work makes liberal use of inlaid copper and abalone, giving all of […]
Our gallery will be closed this Monday for the Memorial Day holiday. We hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend, and we will see you for normal hours on Tuesday, May 30th.
This past weekend we had the opportunity to join Raven Skyriver (Tlingit) and his team at PRATT Fine Arts Studio to watch him blow a salmon as a special commission for a client. Salmon have become an iconic creature for Raven to blow in glass, and watching him use a cage punty (shown below) on […]
Courtney Lipson (Adopted Tlingit/Non-Indigenous) has developed an incredible micro-mosaic technique to bead on carved wood.

This mask is a collaboration between Courtney and […]
