Georgette Johnson has been the proud owner and operator of Turtle Island Gallery Native Art and Gifts, for the past twenty years. Located in the Heart of Kelowna's arts and cultural district this Native Art Gallery features beautiful Northwest Coast Art created by the Haida, Kwaguilth, Tsimshian, Coast Salish and various other tribes of B.C. as well Metis, Cree and Ojibwe artists' works from across Canada.
The native art gallery, which is featured in The Lonely Planet Guide for Canada, and recommended on Trip Advisor, has a stunning selection of Northwest Coast wood carvings including ceremonial masks, totem poles, talking sticks, plaques, and bentwood style boxes. You will also discover pieces carved of argillite and soapstone. And, if you are into jewellery the exquisite hand carved gold and silver bracelets, rings, earrings and pendants are a must see.
For those into the more one dimensional style of art, we have original paintings and limited edition prints both contemporary and traditional.
As well, there is a wonderful selection of Pendelton Blankets from the woolen mills of Pendleton,Oregon.
The Gallery is open throughout the year from 10:00 a.m. until 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday. In the summer we extend our hours to be open on Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Turtle Island Gallery filled with native art and wonderful native crafts and gifts, is definitely a feast for the senses. Come by for a visit and indulge yourself!
