Dedicated to the promotion and sale of artwork created by Canada’s indigenous peoples, Native Art Gallery has been a staple of picturesque downtown Oakville since it opened in 1995. The gallery now exists down the street in a contemporary gallery space in the historic Towne Square. Under new ownership and with a rejuvenated vision for the gallery, Native Art Gallery strives to connect local and international clients with authentic Canadian sculpture, prints, wall hangings and more produced by Inuit and First Nations’ artists.
We believe that indigenous Canadian art inherently conveys the natural wonder and rich history of Canada through the beauty of the animals, spirits and legends represented through their work. Inuit art has become an internationally recognizable symbol of authentic Canadian art and culture, particularly the Inukshuk, which was recognized as a symbol of Canada when it was chosen to represent the country for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver.
In order to protect Inuit artists, the Canadian Government created the Igloo tag. Issued by the government, the Igloo tag guarantees that the work was created by a legitimate Inuit artist and sold through a reputable dealer. An authentic Igloo tag will accompany each and every Inuit artwork sold on our website to certify its authenticity.
