Masters of Vancouver Island and Beyond: The Todd Collection

In March and April we are honored to present works from the Todd Collection, a spectacular array of works collected throughout the 1990s and 2000s. The collection has a special focus on masks by Vancouver Island artists in Kwakwaka’wakw, Kwagiulth and Nuu-chah-nulth traditions. This exhibition brings together masks, bowls, chests, panels and objects from some of the Northwest Coast’s most revered artists, and represents a dazzling survey of some of the most important carvers working on and around Vancouver Island from the mid-to-late 20th century.

The collection includes works by Art Thompson (Nuu-chah-nulth), Susan Point (Musqueam), Jay Brabant (Cree), Duane Pasco (Non-Indigenous) Calvin Hunt (Kwakwaka’wakw), Beau Dick (Kwakwaka’wakw) and John Livingston (Non-Indigenous/Adopted Kwakwaka’wakw), Mervyn Child (Kwakwaka’wakw/Tlingit/Nuu-chah-nulth), Simon Dick (Kwakwaka’wakw), George Hunt Jr. (Kwakwaka’wakw), Scott Jensen (Non-Indigenous/Adopted Tlingit), Don Yeomans (Haida) and numerous others.

Raven Skyriver: CONFLUENCE

We are proud to present a new solo exhibition by Washington-based glassblower Raven Skyriver (Tlingit), which will include collaborations with his partner Kelly O’Dell (Non-Indigenous). Raven is creating works that will explore the ecosystems and wildlife of places of confluence, where salt water meets fresh and streams of life converge. Confluence also refers to the idea of the coming together of crux points: the tipping points between losing species and saving them; the time ebbing away to head off or reverse climate change; the simultaneity of learning more about our planet and its wildlife at the same time it is becoming less habitable for them. Raven is deeply concerned with the state of our environment and the significant challenges faced by marine life of the Salish Sea and wider Pacific Ocean. He is a board-member of SR3, a sea mammal rescue, rehabilitation and education non-profit.

Masters of Disguise IV: Group Mask Exhibition

In what has become a hotly anticipated annual tradition, we present “Masters of Disguise IV” a group exhibition of masks by artists around the Northwest. In the past we have seen masks that run the gamut from highly traditional to completely experimental, and everything in between. This will be an invitational exhibition featuring both emerging and established artists from the Northwest Coast, and we can’t wait to share their visions with you this June.
