Indian Art from the Edge

If you ask what west coast art looks like, many will point to works created by First Nations artists.

But if you wanted to buy a piece of West Coast First Nations art, where would you go? And how would you find out about the artist?

You could buy something directly from the artist on the street.

That's what Marylee Stephenson has been doing for years. And she realized that many of the talented 1st nations artists selling their works to passersby were in need of a better way to sell their art. So she started Indian Art From the Edge. You can hear that conversation after the 7:00 am news Saturday.
