Victoria Collects: The Salish Weave Collection
The Salish Weave Collection, as part of the Victoria Collects exhibition, demonstrates that a passion for local indigenous art can translate beyond amassing and decorating to sharing and educating. Focused exclusively on works by contemporary Coast Salish artists, the objective of this collection is to see this unique art, with its distinct and traditional forms, recognized and appreciated worldwide in a similar way as other Northwest Coast art. Artworks from the Salish Weave Collection have been lent and donated far and wide to promote to a broader audience the work of artists such as Susan Point, lessLIE and John Marston.
Victoria Collects: The Salish Weave Collection, curated by Mary Jo Hughes, is the first exhibition dedicated to the collection.
