Coming Soon: Gallery of Northwest Coast Masterworks
In case you missed our big news last month, MOA will soon be home to a significant collection of historical and contemporary Indigenous artworks and a new Gallery of Northwest Coast Masterworks. The anonymous donation of more than 200 pieces of Indigenous art, worth an estimated $7 million, is believed to be the largest collection of Northwest Coast First Nations art to return to B.C. in recent decades.

Work on the new gallery has already begun, and it is scheduled to open in June. We’re incredibly excited by this development, and we invite you to learn more about it on our website. You can see a few of the donated objects above, or take a moment to view our Masterworks photo gallery on Flickr. 

Make Your Own Ceramic Art with MOA’s Artist in Residence
Javier Ramirez, a highly acclaimed ceramic artist from Mexico, is in residence at MOA until December 15. Drop by and visit him as he creates a Tree of Life sculpture for our collection. Or better yet, you can join Javier this Saturday for a rare chance to sculpt your own ceramic creations and have them fired in a dugout, wood-burning kiln on MOA’s grounds. Learn more and get tickets.
Unique Gifts Galore at our Winter Art Market
If you’re searching for thoughtful gifts for friends and family, you’ll find plenty of ideas at our annual Winter Art Market. Our wonderful staff at the MOA Shop have gathered up their favourite seasonal items and stocked up on your favourite gifts, such as this stunning shirt by Nuxalk artist Danika Naccarella, the winner of our t-shirt contest this year. The Winter Art Market runs at the MOA Shop until December 24.
