6 Art Design Sketches

  • 536

To date, we have received six design sketches from various local aboriginal artists including designs for throw blankets, headboards and metal room dividers. Shain Jackson, the lead artist for Kwa’lilas Hotel, is in the process of digitizing the sketches for the elders to review over the next few weeks. The Elders Selection Committee consists of elders from both Gwa’sala & ’Nakwaxda’xw Nations:

  • Lily Johnny
  • Richard George
  • Gertie Walkus
  • Betty Walkus
  • Mary Henderson

If you are a Gwa’sala-’Nakwaxda’xw artist, we would love to hear from you. We have identified numerous areas within the hotel worthy of displaying our distinct artwork.
