In December 2019 our gallery hit a major milestone: our 40th anniversary! Founded in 1979 by Nancy Taylor Stonington, our staff has worked with hundreds of artists and thousands of clients, helping promulgate a wider and deeper appreciation for the history, peoples, art and traditions, living cultures, and environment of the Pacific Northwest Coast.
On December 8th, we gathered at 101 South Jackson for a series of special events: remarks by David R Boxley, Qwalsius Shaun Peterson, Isabel Rorick, Alison Bremner, and Robert Davidson, and a performance by the Git-Hoan Dance Group led by David A. Boxley. Thank you to everyone who spoke and performed, volunteered and worked, photographed and videotaped, and attended. This celebration was a gift from us to you, to thank you for 40 years of support and camaraderie.
Take a look at some of the special moments from the day. (All photos by Ashley Genevieve for Stonington Gallery.) Video of all the presentations and the Git-Hoan Dancers are at the bottom of this page.
