This month's talk explores the history of Haida carvings in this beautiful and rare jet black stone. Gallery Director, Ian Sigvaldason explains why historical works-and those by some contemporary carvers-are so valuable, and helps buyers know what to look for when purchasing argillite carvings.

Join us at the gallery on Thursday, 3 November from 6pm-8pm.
