Fifteen: Transcending Time Through the Works of First Nations Artists

Event Date: Friday, October 01, 2010

Catapulting viewers into the future while also immersing them in the past, the latest exhibition, ‘Fifteen,’ at the Douglas Reynold’s Gallery celebrates historical First Nation pieces while showcasing the works of modern North-West coast native artists.

Celebrating the galleries inception 15 years ago, the owner Douglas Reynolds has brought together 30 talented artists including one of the most recognized First Nation artists in Canada, Bill Reid. The exhibit also features “up-and-comers” on the art scene, all artists who have risen to the top in the past few years.

Most of the artworks have never been shown to the public before and include varied art styles from different historical periods.

First Nation art in the past has often been overlooked as simply being a native craft but now strong demand is coming from the international front, as well from businesses, and interior designers.

"First Nation art is being shown in a different light – it’s a different game – and it is being embraced by people from all walks of life worldwide,” Reynolds states.

This exhibit definitely is in keeping with the galleries spirit – to celebrate the past, affirm the present and anticipate the future. Check it out!

Where: Douglas Reynolds Gallery 2333 Granville Street
