Homage to our Brave Warriors - Ninstints, oil on canvas, 36. Painting by Wendy Wacko

Last year, Jasper artist and Mountain Gallery at The Fairmont owner Wendy Wacko explored the same hauntingly beautiful Haida village remains that captivated west coast painter Emily Carr 100 years earlier. Accompanied by a Haida guide and travelling by float plane, Wacko painted among the remnants of a 10,000 year old culture. Her admiration for the art and mythology of the Queen Charlotte Islands is evident in her new works, some of which are displayed in her own galleries, courtesy Edmonton’s Scott Gallery. — JN
