Artwork made can be kept by the artist, displayed or sold using the NCES gallery. All art sales through our organization are conducted directly for our artists. Visa/MasterCard payments accepted by the gallery, and passed in full to the artist (less the credit card charges).

Over the years, the artists have been increasing their fine arts skills and range of artwork (masks, prints, panels, plaques, rattles, paddles, bowls, among other items). The carversā€™ art has been sold locally, nationally and internationally. Beginner pieces sell in the $25-125 range, and advanced carvers sell their work for $1,000 ā€“ $5,000 depending on size and complexity of the piece. The participants have been featured in four gallery shows at Arts Underground in Whitehorse. Individual participants have also participated in a variety of other shows, sales, in stores and in galleries around the Yukon, Alaska and Vancouver areas.
