Brian Walker: Copper Stories
Saturday, May 14, 2 - 4 pm
We are very pleased to present the work of Whitehorse artist Brian Walker. Though not First Nations himself, through his marriage to Ann Smith of the Kwanlin Dun First Nation, he has been deeply involved in the cultures of that area, raising their children and grandchildren with a deep consciousness of their First Nation heritage.
All of the art work is available for immediate purchase and we are delighted that additional art work will be arriving in the gallery in the next few days, so be sure to come back for another visit.
Born in Montreal and moving to the west coast of Canada at a young age, Brian Walker met Bill Reid when he was twelve years old. At the time, Reid was beginning his first commission for the University of British Columbia. Over the next two years, Walker spent his spare time and summers at Reid’s studio, learning about Northwest coast carving designs and traditions. This experience sparked a lifelong passion for First Nations art and culture. Continue to Brian Walker's Biography.
All works are available for immediate purchase.
