A leading First Nations fine art gallery established in 1996, Coastal Peoples is ideally situated in two key downtown locations – urban Yaletown and historic Gastown. Each has an inviting atmosphere within a restored warehouse setting which complements the exquisitely handcrafted artwork by authentic aboriginal artists inhabiting British Columbia’s Northwest Coast and the Inuit communities of Canada’s Arctic regions.
