A new exhibition mounted by Arts Whistler at the Maury Young Arts Centre acknowledges that Whistler is part of the Líl̓wat Nation’s beautiful traditional territory – and gives people the chance to discover the beauty of Líl̓wat artists’ work.

The exhibition has been running since May 16, and will conclude May 26. It showcases contemporary Líl̓wat artists, carvers and artisans including carvers Jonathan Joe and Ashley Joseph, weaver Vera Edmonds, painters Rick Nelson and Levi Nelson and traditional regalia maker, Lois Joseph.

The exhibition also features captivating photos from the Líl̓wat community’s cultural celebrations, including the Líl̓wat Nation Rodeo, Powwows and other cultural gatherings, many by Pemberton photographer Simon Bedford.
