Art Harry

Art Harry is a Squamish Nation artist. He has been carving since he was 15 years old and was mostly inspired by the late Chief Larry Joseph. Art was also taught different cuts and ways of carving by renowned carver Rick Harry. Art and Rick Harry have worked with local secondary school students to design and carve a 9 ft. eagle, bear totem and various house posts which can be seen at the local Squamish Totem Hall.

Art has been carving for 25 yrs and still feels he learns something new every day. He enjoys carving daily as it is part of his tradition and culture, he also feels that carving contributes to his overall well-being.

Art carves plaques, paddles, totem poles and some masks and bentwood boxes.
