I love this gallery! So many beautiful pieces to look at. From historic artifacts to modern carvings to beautiful jewelry. A great staff... so friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth stopping in.
This gallery is wonderful! My dad and I commissioned a Haida frog from them for my mother's birthday and we had little over a month to get it done. The gallery worked with us and went out of their way to make sure the piece was done on time, even early. They thought to help us customize it ( aquamarine eyes to match her birthstone instead of topaz), in order to to make it more speical without our initiative and we did the whole transaction online because we live in Seattle and my dad was in the hospital at the time. I cannot say enough good things about this gallery!
This place is a bit away from the galleries in the Gastown neighborhood, but it is well worth the short bus ride from downtown. Before coming here, I visited at least half a dozen galleries whose employees dismissed me immediately as a tourist who was there just to waste their time. This place was completely different - I walked in and was promptly greeted by David. I saw a piece on the website and wanted to see it in person. Unfortunately, it had already been sold, so he took me around to look at other works by the same artist. I was ambivalent with what was available and he suggested that I could commission a piece of art. Over the next few days, David and I communicated over email as I decided on an artist, subject matter, and size of piece, all based on my budget. His communications were very prompt and he was very patient as I asked the most random questions about clashing colors, subject size, mythology, etc. The piece took two months to complete and in between David was very diligent about sending me regular progress reports from the artist. I am completely satisfied with how the piece turned out and I look forward to working with the gallery again on my next purchase.
I love this place. They have a diverse selection of art forms and both very affordable and very expensive pieces with a lot in between. We bought 4 prints from here this past summer and just received a wood panel from here for Christmas. The staff are super friendly and helpful going out of their way to tell you about the pieces, the artists, and the history. They really go above and beyond to help you find the right piece for you.
This is a wonderful gallery to stop into to see some truly remarkable art from the Pacific Northwest. This gallery focuses on art of First Nations' peoples, and you will find an impressive collection of such things as enormous masks and carvings. For someone like me, this gallery is for looking and not buying, but it is very worthwhile to make the stop here. It is a small, highly curated gallery put together by someone with very refined taste. This place is definitely worth including in your South Granville stroll.
