Published to accompany the exhibition titled, Wolves: The Art of Dempsey Bob. Publisher's description: Dempsey Bob (b.1948) is a Tahltan-Tlingit master carver based in Terrace, British Columbia. Born in Telegraph Creek, he began carving in 1969, and commenced his formal training at the Gitanmaax School of Northwest Coast Indian Art in 1972 under the direction of the famed female carver Freda Diesing (1925-2002). Teaching remains at the heart of his daily life at the Freida Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art, which he co-founded with his two nephews, carvers Stan Bevan and Ken McNeil. Today, Bob is one of the most accomplished carvers on the Northwest Coast, yet Wolves will be his first solo museum exhibition, demonstrating his sophisticated carving style and his striking gift for storytelling in both art and language. The publication includes stories from the artist about his life and the cannery culture of the Skeena Valley, his explanations of the works in the exhibition, outtakes from his personal family albums, and extensive photo-documentation of his studio and home community on the Skeena River by editorial photographer Blaine Campbell.
