The Coast Salish artists whose work we collect define and embrace the practice of Coast Salish art. Each artist draws upon traditions and stories of his or her culture, yet challenges the boundaries of Salish art through the exploration of modern media and techniques. Be they world renowned, well established or emergent artists, their style is unmistakably their own. They all live and work in traditional Coast Salish territories, on the Pacific southwest coast of British Columbia and the northwest coast of the United States.
