Welcome to my new Dorothy Grant Art Gallery. I am pleased to present my collection of some of the finest Northwest Coast Indigenous contemporary and traditional art forms. I have focused over the past 33 years collecting the art I love from master carvers, painters, basket makers, jewelry, glass, and textile artists. On my new web pages, you will see artwork made from the master artist’s hands where each piece is unique and one of a kind. Over the 33 years, I have forged collaborations and relationships built on admiration and passion for supporting the artists. We have traded ideas, traded goods with each other, and collaborated in design. Some of the artists are my dearest friends. We have seen each other thru many excellent and hard times. I believe these pieces carry the essence of the artist’s vision, talents and culture. The traditional arts are based on generations of indigenous knowledge handed down to them from their ancestors. The contemporary arts are from artists that have paved the way and have understood and practiced the traditional rules of form line and have pushed the boundaries.
Included in these pages is my artwork of textiles, and glass art is also included in this collection.
I present my collection for sale, as I believe art must evolve and move. It must be shared, and the artist can enjoy more commissioned works. I endeavour to commission some of these artists to do their best for me. This is what you will witness on my new gallery pages. Now more than ever, every artist needs support to continue their fantastic legacy. I am also available to consult for private commissions directly to the artist and consign works for sale.
I am pleased to answer any questions. Feel free to email me at [email protected]
