From Galleries to Groceries
Like everything in the Valley, it is the hidden-away aspect that is so alluring when it comes to checking out the arts and crafts. Admire totem poles, authentic ceremonial masks, carvings, jewelry among other incredible objects.
Custom-made items by a Bella Coola artisan may include a gorgeous quilt, wooden furnishings or uniquely designed ceramic tiles. Go down the driveway to a potter´s private studio that also exhibits other local works. Spend time in this pleasant gallery, chatting with the potter who does both stoneware and Raku. Admire the large canvases of a local wildlife artist whose work is exhibited nationally. A well-known nature photographer calls the Valley home; his books can be purchased at Kopas Store, established in 1937 and the epitome of a general store.
