VANCOUVER, BC  •  Vancouver Art Gallery  •  Ongoing

Charles Edenshaw was recognized in his time as an outstanding Haida artist and remains an iconic figure in Northwest Coast art. Working in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries (1829-1920), he was an exceptional carver of wood, silver and argillite, combining traditional Haida design with an innovative and elegant personal style, and raising Northwest Coast art to new heights of sophistication. On view at the Vancouver Art Gallery, the exhibition Charles Edenshaw marks the first major survey of Edenshaw’s work, featuring over 200 pieces in all media from public and private collections from around the world.
