Stonington Gallery exhibits an exciting collection of contemporary masterworks from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. Serving Seattle since 1979, the gallery is respected for the depth and quality of its collection, exceptional service and knowledgeable staff. For visitors wishing to understand the character of Seattle and the wider Northwest Coast, our gallery is a rich cultural introduction, and proof of the vibrant, living indigenous cultures of our region. Our mission is to provide the ideal environment for the presentation, enjoyment and understanding of premier contemporary art of the Pacific Northwest Coast and Alaska, and to foster greater appreciation for these artforms. Our commitment to educating the public and advancing the appreciation of Northwest Coast art has led us to exhibit at museums, convention centers, government buildings, SeaTac airport, the Seattle Aquarium, art fairs, and as far away as Nantes, France.
Jason Gobin & Trevor Hunt
In August we present exhibitions by Jason Gobin (Tulalip Nation) and Trevor Hunt (Kwaguʼł Nation), two mid-career artists creating contemporary versions of traditional objects such as masks, paddles, and panels.
Gobin– known as Hik Stubs in the Tulalip dialect–focuses on the revitalization of Salish artforms through the use of multiple media, including painting, carving, weaving, and digital. Gobin is also a commercial fisherman, and the caretaker and one of the skippers for the tribal sea-going canoes at Tulalip.
Hunt hails from farther up the Northwest Coast, and is part of the famed Hunt family of Fort Rupert on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. He comes from a long line of hereditary carvers and artists that have been instrumental in the survival of the Kwaguʼł art form on the Northwest Coast. His father is Stan Hunt, his grandfather was Henry Hunt and his great-grandfather was Mungo Martin.
