Arctic Raven’s art consultation service offers discerning individuals, interior designers, architects and corporate art consultants invaluable assistance in procuring outstanding Native masterworks to enliven interior or exterior spaces.
A close collaboration between Arctic Raven Gallery and the owners of the dramatic San Juan Island home featured on this web page, brought the warmth of Northwest Coast Native art to the home’s large interior spaces. Outside, commissioned totem poles complement the spectacular cliff-side setting. Many pieces in the home, which look custom designed, were selected from the Gallery’s extensive inventory.
For custom design work, the Gallery serves as a liaison with acclaimed Native artists, commissioning specialized pieces and offering unique design solutions. From sculpted cedar and glass entry doors, to sliding panels, the Gallery has been pleased to respond to our clients’ individual requests.
The Gallery, located in downtown Friday Harbor, Washington, showcases a superior collection of contemporary works from the Pacific Northwest and Arctic regions. The depth of the collection allows a portfolio of works to be considered before choosing the most appropriate pieces. Complimentary placement and simple installations are included for work going to nearby locations.
Arctic Raven is known for its exceptional service and knowledgeable staff. The gallery has become a resource for collectors and consultants, helping to transform many homes and public spaces with the power of magnificent Native art. Please contact us to set up a complimentary appointment. We enjoy offering this custom service to our valued clientele.
“Baxbakualanuxsiwae”cedar mask by Beau Dick, creates a colorful and baroque center of interest amidst the neutral tones of the home’s interior. In the background a stained cedar sliding panel custom designed by Rande Cook, covers an entertainment center. The Gallery serves as a liaison with acclaimed Native artists, like Rande Cook, to commission specialized pieces and offer unique design solutions.
Expressed in this red cedar rendition of “Wolf’s Moon” by Rande Cook are the four different phases of the moon. From the four seasons to the four parts of the cycle of life for the salmon as it travels from the rivers only to return again, this number is echoed throughout Native culture as well as the rooms of this home.
Rande Cook’s “Sun” mask graced the invitation to our “Ten Years After” anniversary show. Although it looks custom designed for the home’s master bedroom, it was not. By carrying a large inventory and knowing what pieces are available from select artists, the gallery can often find the appropriate piece without needing to commission custom work.
