Spotlight On: Masters of Vancouver Island & Beyond - The Todd Collection
We are honored to present works from the Todd Collection, a spectacular array of works collected over a 25 year period. In 2018 we presented the first segment of the Todd Collection, selling many exquisite works immediately. Now, we are excited to re-feature this collection of master-quality works with new pricing. This array includes some of the most important names in contemporary Northwest Coast art, and pieces made at the height of these artists’ powers.
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.
