Alison Bremner Exhibit

“Culture is not stagnant. Through contact and the technological revolution Tlingit culture is constantly adapting, observing, and searching for its place in the world.”

Alison O. Bremner is a Tlingit artist born and raised in Southeast Alaska. Bremner is believed to be the first woman to carve and raise a totem pole. She has studied under master artists David R. Boxley and David A. Boxley in Kingston, Washington. Painting, wood carving, regalia, and digital collage are a few mediums the artist employs. In addition to her contemporary art practice, Bremner is committed to the revitalization of the Tlingit language and creating works for traditional and ceremonial use.

Her work is included in the permanent collections of, among others, the Burke Museum, Seattle Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, Chateau Musee Bologne-sur Mer, Frye Art Museum, and the British Museum.

This exhibit runs from July 18th – September 30th, 2022. Make sure to stop by!

Permanent Collection

In 1975 the City of Seattle’s 1% for Art Program allocated $80,000 for the Daybreak Star Center for an original collection of Native American Art across cultures. Native American artists were selected through a national competition to create a group of works representative of contemporary India and Alaskan Native art. The Daybreak Star Arts Center opened to the public in 1978.
