Art Galleries & Artists
Glass artwork (Danielle Hayes photo)
Northern BC's lush forests, majestic totem poles and coastal Aboriginal culture were sources of inspiration for renowned British Columbian artists Bill Reid, Emily Carr and Roy Henry Vickers.
The region's dramatic landscapes and thriving traditions continues to inspire emerging Northern BC artists today.
Aboriginal art figures prominently in the region. Discover towering totem poles, handcrafted canoes, and carved argillite (a type of stone) at the Haida Heritage Centre on the Queen Charlotte Islands; or intricately-detailed masks and ceremonial art at the Museum of Northern BC in Prince Rupert.
The region is also home to emerging contemporary artists. The Two Rivers Art Gallery in Prince George sources regional, national and international art, and the Dawson Creek Art Gallery showcases work evocative of the Peace River region.
