Share story

For 39 years, Stonington Gallery has showcased masterworks from the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, specializing in native art. A stroll through the gallery’s 33,000 square feet feels like a history lesson. You’ll find traditional wood totems and masks, as well as sand-etched glass homages to basket weaving and innovative pieces by contemporary indigenous artists from the region. (125 S.
