The voices of the ancestors speak through the work of a new generation of First Nation artists and their honored mentors in this exceptional collection.  SJIMA is pleased to present Emergence, its first exhibition in all three galleries devoted to First Nation art.  Many of the artists are members of tribes within the Coastal Pacific Northwest and others are Inuit from the Hudson Bay area. Over 25 artists are represented from at least five different private collections.  

Our goal is to highlight contemporary artist – while featuring traditional carving and cultural images.

The exhibitions are accompanied by various educational materials and events that honor the artists representing their tribal cultural heritage through the visual arts.

Larger groups can make a reservation by calling in advance.
