A new book featuring a diverse group of Haida Gwaii argillite carvers was celebrated at Christian White’s Longhouse in Old Massett on June 23. Carol Sheehan, the author of Breathing Stone: Contemporary Haida Argillite Sculpture, along with photographers Jack Littrell and John Heintz and several of the 15 featured artists were on hand to autograph copies of the Frontenac Press book. The book features more than 100 photos taken in artists’ workshops, galleries, collectors’ homes and on Haida Gwaii, along with profiles on talented argillite sculptors and carvers like Jay Simeon, Robert Vogstad, Darrell White, Martin Williams, Chris Russ, Lionel Samuels and more. Those interested in learning more about the book and meeting some of the talent involved in creating it can attend another book signing event at the Haida Heritage Centre in Skidegate starting at 6 pm tonight (July 3).
