The Copper Sun Gallery was established in 2015 with the intention of providing a venue for Nuxalk artists to sell and receive fair prices for their work. Located on traditional Nuxalk territory on the Central Coast in beautiful Bella Coola, B.C., the Copper Sun Gallery carries all locally-made, handcrafted Nuxalk art.

Nuxalk art has a distinctive style and features particular designs that are unique to Nuxalk territory and family crests. In particular, the use of a vibrant blue has long been a identifying hallmark of Nuxalk art, the “Bella Coola Blue.” As Nuxalk master carver Alvin Mack explains, “the art is the vessel for the culture, it’s how we communicate our history and tell our smayustas (creation stories).” Smayustas, or creation stories, are tied to family crests and also a shared history. They are the reason Nuxalk art is crafted, and each piece made by a Nuxalk artist is carrying this history.


Art Gallery

The Copper Sun Gallery values their relationships with their artists and is committed to ensuring their customers are completely satisfied with their purchase of authentic Nuxalk art.
