This month we look at Northwest Coast Native Bowls, Rattles and Spoons with a show-and-tell about these three important artifacts important to the home and ceremonial life of the coastal tribes. Gallery Director Ian Sigvaldason discusses the significance, design, function and creation of these exquisite objects.
Join us at the gallery on Thursday, 5 January from 6pm-8pm.
See some of the finest examples of Contemporary and Historical Rattles, Bowls and Spoons at the Gallery through the month of February.
