In the studio, emerging and established Indigenous artists work with forms and figures that express an ageless relationship to the land of present-day British Columbia. Visit Indigenous-owned and -curated collections of art made by Indigenous painters, jewellers, carvers, and weavers whose living stories as artists are connected to ancestral stories and experiences. There are many Indigenous galleries in BC where knowledge of the artist and the artist’s community deepens the connection to your art purchase.
