December 3, 2010 Recently, on October 21st, the Tsimshian community lost a much-respected and gifted artist Victor Reece.  He was known as an artist, storyteller and educator.

Born near Prince Rupert in 1946, he spent his childhood in Hartley Bay and his cousins are Heber and Henry Reece who are both well-known artists.

He studied at the K'san School of Art in Hazelton, British Columiba and later became an educator employed by the Vancouver School Board in the role of bridging native traditions with urban school issues.

Victor performed often in the Talking Stick Festival and was a part of the Big Sky Multimedia Storytelling Society.  His Bear Mother Project for Pender Island created three welcome poles at the entrance of their Community Hall.  For the Canadian Museum of Civilization's "Great Hall" in Ottawa, Ontario, he assisted in the design and construction of a traditional Tsimshian longhouse which still stands today. 

Victor's work continues to be sought-after by many collectors due to its refinement and distinctive carving style.

His Spider Prince sculpture and Raven Copper Rattle are featured and currently available on this web site.

View these pieces and more details on Victor Reece through our Sculptures and/or Artist Biographies links.
