  • Raven
    The most important of all creatures to the Northwest coast Indian peoples was the Raven. He took many forms to many peoples -- the Transformer, the cultural hero, the trickster, the Big Man. Full of magical powers, the Raven could transform himself into anything. He put the sun in the sky, the fish in the sea, the salmon into the rivers. His antics were often motivated by greed, and he loved to tease, to cheat, to woo, and to trick.
  • Barry Herem

    Barry Herem is a Seattle artist who has worked in the Northwest Coast Indian style for many years. He has written about the subject as a reviewer, and as an unofficial ethnographer and archaeologist who has done field work collecting and publishing data about the precontact Tlingit and Haida of Southeast Alaska.

    Barry's work is symbolic, animistic, and organic, and has been shown in nearly every major American city and many foreign ones. Barry's taut and harmonious work owes much to the essential forms of Northwest Coast native art, which he has renewed and extended in what he calls "equal parts of invention and assimilation."

    He has created artworks in wood, steel, bronze, fabric, aluminum plate, glass and serigraphic print form. He has created several large sculptures, including two 30-foot aluminum plate whale sculptures for the Portland, Oregon International Airport and a large acrylic sculpture for the Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) airport. He has created more than 40 limited-edition serigraphs, plus 5" x 7" art cards based on them.
