The Supernatural Realm / Land of Supernatural Beings is an exhibition of work by Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson which utilizes photomontages and sound works to reveal Haida Gwaii's Supernatural Beings and their teachings. This installation work honours the importance of ancestors and community, the lost Indigenous women and girls, and children who experienced residential schools.

Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson is a musician, author, activist, artist, and lawyer who has dedicated herself to the continuation of Haida language and culture. Born in Haida Gwaii, Terri-Lynn has been a promoter of Haida music and language since the age of 13, when she was drawn to the songs her centenarian great-grandmother and grandmother sang.

More information about this exhibition can be found on our website.

We need your help.

We rely on your generous donations to do what we do -- provide the community with a contemporary art gallery that presents impactful artwork, engages the community, and gives artists space and tools to research, experiment, and create.

This year generous supports have offered to match every donation we receive until the end of the year, up to $2,000. In other words, if you donate $100 it will be matched so the amount we receive is $200.

Please help us continue the work we do by making a donation to the Gallery today. You will be provided with a generous charitable tax receipt.

Thank you for your support. We couldn't do it without you.
