Northwest Coast Indian Artist

Scott Copeland, Northwest Coast Indian Artist work is on display at Toad Hall. Scott is the son of a local resident, Betty Johnston. His artwork is derived from the Tlingit and Haida, First Nations of the Queen Charlotte Islands of Alaska. Scott has added new original pieces to his collection, along with greeting card and signed prints for this showing. Copeland's work is authentic to the Tlingit and Haida Nations. He follows the original rules of these peoples, using "form lines and the shapes referred to as ovoids, U forms and feathers forms." The patterns depicted in his art are of nature forms of the Queen Charlotte Islands, including Salmon, Raven, Crab, Orca, The Sun and Moon and the legendary Sisiutls that are usually displayed on the outside of the Native American's cedar planked long homes to discourage evil spirits from entering. His artwork is indicative of the Pacific Northwest Indian culture, which hasn't changed throughout the history of this region.
