What is Coast Salish art?
"Coast Salish art to me is using these elements Oval/Circles, Crescents, Trigons. It can be positive or negative trigons, extended trigons. I honestly believe that any Salish artist can push the boundaries of our art. Traditional and Contemporary can meet up and become something very beautiful in the eye of the beholder. Our stories told through art can always be re-visited or even re-done but in honor of artists before us, we always honor the ones before us and the ones that will be here after us."
"I believe that Coast Salish art is about tradition, perpetuation, and spirituality. The importance of self expression and going against the grain."
"I think of Coast Salish art as one of the oldest art forms stemming from our oldest Coast Salish Stone Bowl figures. It is kind of like a barebones art that is based on the creation that lives around us. We are a very adaptive people who have used every precious resource that was previously available to us for art, dance and various ceremonies."
