About the show
The Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art brings all nations together in the pursuit of higher education and sets new standards for aspiring artists. It is the only school of its kind in Canada, focusing on traditional First Nations Pacific Northwest Coast art, with the view of developing skills into fine art.
The school offers the First Nations Fine Arts program, instructed and mentored by world-renowned artists Dempsey Bob (Tahltan/Tlingit), Stan Bevan (Tahltan/Tlingit/Tsimshian), and Ken McNeil (Tahltan/Tlingit/Nisga’a.) Visiting artists, dignitaries, and cultural advocates enhance the learning environment with their knowledge, wisdom, and experience.
The exhibition showcases the artwork of first and second-year students.
