One panel of RED
Opening Reception: April 2nd, 6-8pm
Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas:
We are proud to present the first American gallery exhibit of contemporary Vancouver artist Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas (Haida tribe). His dynamic work has been seen in museums and galleries across Canada, Asia and Europe, but he makes his Seattle debut with Stonington Gallery and the Seattle Art Museum.
He makes use of the buoyant and exaggerated caricatures seen in cartoons and comics, and uses the elegant lines of Northwest Coast design to both border the action and direct the flow. The result are narrative paintings that burst with motion, exuberance, humor and arresting characters, while tying together the graphic traditions of two disparate Pacific Rim island-dwelling cultures.
Our exhibition will feature works on paper, limited edition prints, and works on metal. Of particular note are Yahgulanaas' two sculptural series Coppers From the Hood and Flappes, which are made from actual car parts.
The Hoods are a clever commentary on the ancient form of the copper, which was a shield-shaped copper plate used to signify great wealth by Haida clan leaders. A status symbol, coppers were given away at potlatches, showing that the givers were wealthy enough to afford to distribute them to others.

at the Seattle Aquarium
"Harbor" by Raven Skyriver, installed at the Seattle Aquarium.
We are proud to present a select grouping of Raven Skyriver's blown glass marine life and Thomas Stream's limited edition prints at the Seattle Aquarium this year! To celebrate the opening of the new Harbor Seal Exhibit, Skyriver debuts a new harbor seal sculpture, as well as other spectacular works. Skyriver grew up on Lopez Island, WA and is passionate about the wildlife and ecosystems surrounding us. Thomas Stream is also a keen observer of natural life, depicting birds, fish and aquatic mammals of the region. His prints are emblematic of the interconnectivity between different habitats and environments.
All works in the exhibit are for sale.
