Vancouver Inuit & First Nations Art Galleries
Vancouver First Nation and Inuit art galleries feature the best First People’s Art available anywhere. Whether you’re a serious collector, just getting started, or looking for a beautiful souvenir, you’ll find what you want.
Northwest Coast Art is the most collectible aboriginal art in the world, and Vancouver is the centre of that activity. Native artists are now among the most recognized, collected and appreciated of all Canadian artists.
In the late 60s, First Nations elders took on the responsibility of preserving and reviving their history and culture. As a result, it is now possible to find contemporary Northwest Coast art and artists that rival the great art and artists of the past.
Visit the Museum of Anthropology then visit a gallery such as Spirit Wrestler or Marion Scott Gallery in Gastown. You’ll see that the beauty and skill of the past is rivaled in the work being done today by Canada’s best First Nation artists. If you have any questions, talk to Derek Norton at Spirit Wrestler. His expertise will help you with your First Nations art purchase decisions. I promise you will see things with new eyes when you leave the gallery.
