About Salish Weave

The Salish Weave Collection is a private collection of contemporary Coast Salish art that weaves together the distinctive forms and designs of established and emerging artists. The collection stems from and resides mainly on traditional Coast Salish Territories. The purpose of the collection is to support and promote awareness of artists who are contributing to the revival of Coast Salish art. To this end, many pieces of the collection have been exhibited in museums, galleries, universities and other institutions. The artists whose works are represented are among those who define and embrace the practice of Salish art. While drawing upon traditions and stories of their cultures, these artists are also challenging the definition of Salish art as they explore modern media and techniques.
