August 12th, 2014 An extraordinary talent, Ken Humpherville passed away on Saturday, August 9th as he was reaching the pinnacle of his career.

Exactly one year ago, Ken was participating in the annual Santa Fe Indian Art Market in New Mexico and California where he won two ribbons - First Place in Diverse Arts for his mask and Second Place for his bentwood box.

Born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan as a Metis Cree in 1947, his parents moved to British Columbia to settle in Prince Rupert while he was a young child.  Ken became immersed in the Tsimshian culture while he began his life-long love of wood carving, particularly his specialty of steam-bending cedar to create elaborately detailed chests.

Continuously the perfectionist, he dove into each project with enthusiasm and energy to create some of the finest artworks to come from this region.

Ken's life and career were cut short far too early and he will be greatly missed.

We welcome you to view more details on Ken's biography and his works in the Gallery's collection here.
