EWC Gallery Exhibition: First Nations Art of British Columbia

First Nations art of British Columbia is among the most vivid and distinctive artwork in North America. This exhibition includes the artwork of established, mid-career, and emerging Northwest Coast First Nations artists who have a deep respect for traditional practice yet are keenly aware of their relationship to history and their place in contemporary First Nations culture.

These cultures create exquisitely carved objects, intricately woven materials, and beautifully painted surfaces.

This exhibition will open on September 22nd, 2019 and will be on view until January 12th, 2020. Guided gallery tours will be offered Sundays at 3:00pm
