Port Alberni, BC
Ahtsik Gallery specializes in handmade traditional art of the northwest coast. Ahtsik means “Creating to the best of your abilities,” the guiding philosopher of owner and artist Gordon Dick.
Opened in 2008, the site hosts a studio, carving shed, and exhibit space showcasing woodcarvings and jewelry handmade by local and regional coastal artists. Each work of art has been carefully selected for its beauty, story, and high level of craftsmanship. Custom projects including large scale outdoor sculpture, architectural house beams, glass and cedar doors are available by commission to suit each individual living or work space.
