Ahtsik Native Art Gallery houses hand-crafted art from the Nuu-chah-nulth, Coast Salish and Kwakwaka’wakw Nations as well as other First Nations.

Ahtsik Native Art Gallery is owned and operated by Nuu-chah-nulth artist Gordon Dick. When you come into the gallery, you will immediately smell the cedar. You will see many fresh cedar chips on the floor as Gordon and other artists are often working on wood carvings in the gallery.

Through Ahtsik Native Art Gallery, Gordon wants to be a role model to show that First Nations individuals can be successful. His aim is to share with the world the talents of Nuu-chah-nulth and other First Nations’ artists. Ahtsik Native Art Gallery appreciates the hand-crafted work that Canadian Aboriginal artists put into their art pieces and houses original art from many First Nations.


Artist Studio

The carving Shelter in front of the Gallery will catch your attention next to the sign, where large wood projects are carved, such as canoes and totem poles. Gordon Dick and other artists will often be carving in or outside the Gallery. As you enter the Gallery you will be greeted by open custom steel doors of a whale and wolf. Also Eagle and wolf beams and a Kingfisher A-panel design. You will see and smell fresh cedar wood chips.
