Come visit our beautiful Cedar gallery on the Pacific Rim highway heading out of Port Alberni towards Tofino (hwy 4) on Vancouver Island. Ahtsik Native Art Gallery opened December 13th 2008. I am, Gordon Dick, the Artist and Owner of Ahtsik Native Art Gallery. I carved the Kingfisher design of the front entrance as well as the Eagle and Wolf posts that represent my Grandparents. You are welcome to come and see me create original Northwest Coast Art inside the gallery. In warmer months, you can come and see larger Wood projects being carved just outside the gallery, such as a totem pole. I sell many other local First Nations Artists’ Canadian Indian Art work from World Renowned to up and coming. Commissions are accepted.

|Tribe / Nation:|
Dorothy was born and raised in Prince Rupert, British Columbia and has been painting oils for many years.
Her grandparents and mother are Tsimshian from the Village of Port Simpson, members of the Lax Kw Alaams Band, Gitwilgyoots Tribe.
She is deeply moved by scenes of Aboriginal life and the spirits of the great totem poles. Although the Earth has reclaimed many of these majestic monuments, they live on. She continues to paint these scenes as she travels to the villages and towns along the coast and interior of British Columbia.
The poles of the Tsimshian Nation and those standing along the Skeena River, Kitwanga, Moricetown and Hazeltown are magic to the artists brush and Dorthy is humbled to capture their true beauty.
