Established in 1986 by Leona Lattimer, the Lattimer Gallery specialized in First Nations Art of the Northwest Coast. Now operated by Leona’s grandson, Peter Lattimer, the gallery is selling a collection of beautifully-carved bentwood boxes by way of a silent auction.
Twenty boxes have been created by twenty artists including Metis artist James Michels and proceeds from the auction will benefit the Aboriginal health program at BC Woman’s Hospital. On December 3rd, you can check out the boxes during an open house at the gallery (located at 1590 West 2nd Avenue) between 5:00pm and 8:00pm.
Bids for the boxes are accepted in person at the gallery, by phone (604) 732-4556 or by email: info[at]lattimergallery.com. Current bids for various boxes sit between $50 and $250, which are unbelievable prices for these exceptional one-of-a-kind items.
