This exhibition honors the gifts of Dr. Jackson, Professor Emeritus of Geography at the University of Washington and founder of their Canadian Studies Center (1984), to the Western Gallery. Ever since his arrival in Seattle in the mid-fifties, Dr. Jackson has been in love with the art of the Pacific Northwest, particularly the artistic traditions of the First Nations and Native American artists. He not only became interested in their fine art print revivals but also focused on the innovations of such artists as Susan Point, both her print and glass objects. With his long association with the Pacific Northwest Canadian Studies Consortium - University of Washington with Western’s Canadian-American Studies Program, he also studied the development of the print medium in Inuit culture.

Events and exhibitions are free and open to the public unless stated otherwise. Visitor information
