Great Tribal Art

Very nice collection of native art at a variety of price points. The staff was friendly and quite helpful explaining the art, where it was from, meanings, etc.

If I had room in my luggage, I would have spent a fortune! I thoroughly enjoyed the variety of Native art, from carvings to jewelry, prints and more. Very contemporary and beautiful!

When visiting San Juan Island this gallery is always at the top of my list. I've made trips to the island specifically to go see their art collection, and I never leave empty handed. There is a wide variety of pricing allowing those on every budget to find a treasure suiting their needs.

I can't go into this gallery without buying something! An amazing selection of hand-crafted art by NW Native Americans. I've been told this is one of the very best galleries of its type, and this praise is certainly well-deserved.

This has very high quality NW Native American art and sculpture. Very expensive stuff but this market has skyrocketed in the last two decades and the prices reflect it. But the works sold are very high quality and excellent. There are a few cheaper things like scarves and water bottles etc for the tourists as well.

Didn't buy anything but they have a very impressive array of all types of artwork from native peoples of the NW. If you're walking around Friday Harbor this is the best of the shops there.

Excellent quality of contemporary First Nations fine arts and handcrafts, with prices more reasonable than I've seen elsewhere. Owners are friendly and knowledgeable, and the displays are well done. If you have any interest in this kind of creativity, you shouldn't miss Arctic Raven when in Friday Harbor.
