Salish Weave Box Set IV
Unlike the nine commissioned prints of each of Box Sets I, II and III that all measure 22″ x 22″, the prints of Box Set IV vary in size from the large 30″ x 30″ prints by Susan Point to the small 6″ x 22″ print by Maynard Johnny Jr. The prints of Box Set IV were acquired in the early years of the Salish Weave Collection from 2004 to 2007. Over the years, these nine prints have been exhibited in many galleries and some are part of art displays to this day.
