Connect with local artists and immerse yourself in the multicultural history that helps to influence Campbell River’s art scene. Heritage and art often go hand in hand and much of the region’s art is a reflection of elements of the past with an entrepreneurial and innovative twist. The art here uses many different forms of media including glass, ceramic, wood, shells, soapstone, plaster, and traditional metals such as copper. Local First Nations traditions are a classic example of ‘living history,’ the slogan made popular by the Museum at Campbell River. One visit to the Museum brings alive the rich traditions and heritage of this fascinating region and its people. Located on the Tyee Spit, the Carving Shed of Master Carver, Bill Henderson, along with his nephew, Junior, demonstrates that graphic and carving traditions will leave a profound and lasting impression on its visitors.
