Story Tellers: Two Friends, Two Cultures 

Schack Art Center, Everett, WA - To Jun 4 

by Matthew Kangas

First Nations artist David Boxley and Chris Hopkins, a landscape painter, reinvent the main exhibition space at Schack. The two friends claim to share backgrounds of “nomadic explorer ancestry,” and the art reflects their diverse responses to their individual heritage. Boxley, a nationally recognized carver based in Alaska, is acknowledged as “the finest Tsimshian artist of his generation.” Hopkins illustrates his Viking ancestry
in Land of the Frost Giants, a truly cinematic achievement.
