Set of Inuit Art Inukshuk Sculptures as Corporate Business Gifts

We just did a quick project for a company located here in Mississauga that required locating a set of Inuit art inukshuk sculptures for a company event. These inukshuk carvings were to be used as corporate business gifts. See a photo of these pieces at the Inuit Art as Corporate Business Gifts article.

Video of Native Indian Pow Wow Dancers

Here's a video clip of Native Indian pow wow dancers from the Canadian Aboriginal Festival in Toronto. Excellent energy and was really something to see live. This is great addition to the already huge video collection at the Free Spirit Gallery website. Free Spirit Gallery deals with Native Indian artwork.

Appraisals For Valuing Older Native American Art

We sometimes get requests to help people in valuing their older pieces of Native American art. However, Free Spirit Gallery does not deal with older pieces and is not set up for appraisals. There is an article about valuing older Inuit art that will have the same types of recommendations for those who want to get appraisals for older Native American art. We suggest to all individuals who have older pieces to check out this article as well.

Again, we have to re-emphasize, we do NOT do appraisals for any artwork and will refer you back to the article mentioned. We are just a gallery with new contemporary pieces of Inuit art and Northwest Native American art.

A Very Rare Inuit Art Print

One of the Inuit art prints we have at our native art gallery is very rare because this one happens to be from the Puvurnituk shop which closed down back in 1989. There have been no further limited edition Inuit art prints coming out of Puvurnituk ever since.

See more details of the Hunter with Seal art print from Puvurnituk that we have.

Our Popular Native American Art Salmon Fish Carvings

Looks like our Native American art salmon fish carvings have been very popular recently. Here are just two very happy customers who recently purchased salmon fish carvings. Here's what J. Prunty of St. Louis says;

"My salmon woodcarving arrived today. It's just beautiful. It was even nicer than I expected. This piece will be given to a dear friend who is a collector of Northwest Indian art. I know that she will appreciate it even more than I. Please let artist Gary Baker know how much his beautiful creation means to us. And thank you for your great service and excellent communication."

D. Weiss of Alameda, California also purchased a salmon fish carving and this is what she had to say;

"I want to let you know we received our lovely carved salmon. What a beautiful art piece. The fish is even more lovely than on the website. Thank you for sending this so quickly. We will cherish this for a long time."

We still have two Native American art salmon fish carvings left at the gallery.

Downloadable Northwest Native American Art Book

I still find it interesting how even some of our customers have not downloaded our free Northwest Native American art book yet. For lovers of Native American art or even for those just curious to get an idea of what this field of art is all about, our book is an excellent resource for information complete with beautiful photos. To get a more complete description of our 35 page book, click onto the image below.

Walking Polar Bear Inuit Sculpture As Corporate Business Gift

One customer called during the weekend and was in need of a corporate business gift for a trip to Europe. She was to be flying out in two days. So she picked out a few potential pieces from our Inuit sculpture gallery and I brought them to an agreed meeting place downtown Toronto. I brought an Inuit inukshuk, a dancing bear and a walking polar bear sculpture.

It was decided that the walking polar bear Inuit sculpture would probably be the most suitable as a unique corporate business gift from Canada. It was thought that the dancing bears are aimed more towards serious collectors of Inuit art and the inukshuk is for a niche market as well since they are not well known. The walking polar bear on the other hand is classic.

So this customer purchased the walking polar bear on the spot and was no longer in a panic for a last minute corporate business gift.

Wants To Learn Inuit Carving

I received a message from somebody who mentioned that he would like to learn to carve like the Inuit and was wondering if there were any patterns available. I told him that the Inuit carvers do not use patterns but rely on free hand as well as their imagination and familiarity with the different animals up north. It would also be helpful to buy a small Inuit carving to study it in detail at home.

Paul Joseph Will Make More Northwest Native Canadian Indian Art

Master carver Paul Joseph will make more Northwest Native Canadian Indian art carvings for Free Spirit Gallery despite his erratic working schedule. His artwork continues to be popular and in demand from our customers. Last time we had a shipment of his artwork, the choice and rare pieces were sold very quickly.

Most buyers were alerted to the arrival of Paul's work right away since they were on the monthly gallery newsletter subscriber list. Other potential buyers who were not on this list may have faced some disappointment since they were too late to order the pieces they wanted. So avoid disappointment by getting on this subscriber list so that you will be among the first to know about any of Paul Joseph's new artwork that arrives here. Simply enter your name and e-mail in the boxes at the top right of this blog page to become a subscriber to our free monthly newsletter.

Canadian Aboriginal Hockey Team Part Of Toronto League

There's a new recreational hockey league based in Toronto that is made up of teams with Canadian players representing their original cultural backgrounds. Such teams represent Poland, Korea and even a Canadian aboriginal hockey team. They play each other as a quasi international competition and it has been quite successful so far.

Speaking of hockey, if you are a fan of professional hockey, check out the official NHL (National Hockey League) hockey jerseys at Ice Jerseys or click on the graphic below;

I spoke to master carver Cody Mathias last night and he will be making some more Northwest Native American art carvings for us soon. He will be making some more bears (since they seem to sell fast), killer whales and even a wolf.

These new carvings from Cody probably won't be finished until sometime in February but when they do come in, our monthly newsletter subscribers of course will be the first to know -- so get on the list if you are not on already by signing up at the box at the top right of this blog page.
