Douglas Reynolds Gallery
The namesake owner of this 14-year-old gallery is passionate about the First Nations artists whose work he carries. Some of the finest modern work from Northwest Coast First Nations peoples (from Washington State, British Columbia, and the Alaska Panhandle) is represented here; the museum-quality pieces on display include everything from enormous, stunningly carved totem poles to jewelry featuring characteristic Native motifs (eagles, moons, ravens). Reynolds occasionally has super-rare finds: recently he consigned brooches by the late, legendary Haida artist Bill Reid, whose work can be seen on the back of Canada’s $20 bill.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
