New Northwest Native Indian Art Carvings

We have received a supply of new Northwest Native Indian art carvings by Cody Mathias and his nephew this week. However, instead of just putting them up at our Free Spirit Gallery website right away after processing, we are going to do some things different. To reward our free monthly newsletter subscribers, we will be allowing them to have advance viewing of the new carvings before anybody else. This will give them an opportunity to acquire any of these new carvings first before the general public.

So if you want to be part of the advance viewing, make sure that you have signed up as a free subscriber to our monthly newsletter at the sidebar of this blog.

Links For AllPosters Not Working Properly

We realize that the links from our webpages featuring our partner AllPosters for both Inuit art and Native American art are not currently working properly. We have contacted them about this problem and hope that it will be resolved ASAP. Thanks for your patience.

Inuit Native Art Gallery Survey Results

Free Spirit Gallery conducted an online survey among our Inuit and Native art gallery newsletter readers recently. They were asked about their plans to acquire any artwork this year given the effects of the recession.

With a total of 258 respondents from Canada, USA and all over the world, here are the results summarized.

Want to acquire Inuit polar bears - 20%
Want to acquire Inuit inukshuk carvings - 18%
Want to acquire Inuit prints - 30%
Want to acquire Inuit wall hangings - 16%
Want to acquire other Inuit art - 11%

Want to acquire Northwest native carvings - 31%
Want to acquire Northwest native prints - 35%
Want to acquire Northwest native masks ($800 to $1500) - 13%
Want to acquire other Northwest native art - 11%

Will not acquire any art in 2010 - 40%

It is not surprising that there is a significant chunk of readers (40%) who will not be in a position for new artwork this year again due to the recession. What was interesting is that among those who do plan to acquire artwork, both Inuit and Northwest Native prints as well as NW carvings lead the way with the art categories.

We'll try to get some more NW carvings as well as prints in for the future.
