Native artists commit works for Sealaska auction

JUNEAU — Sealaska Heritage Institute officials say more than 40 northwest Native artists have committed works for an auction fundraiser scheduled to take place next year in Juneau.

The Tinaa (Tin-AH’) Art Auction is scheduled for Feb. 1 and will feature a live auction, silent auction and a Native fashion show.

The pieces committed by artists for the auction range in value between $500 and $55,000. Works include weavings, jewelry, paintings, and wood and glass carvings.

The art auction is a fundraiser for construction of the planned Walter Soboleff (SO’-boe-loff) Center, an educational facility named after late Tlingit (CLINK’-it) leader Dr. Walter Soboleff, who died in 2011 at age 102.

Sealaska Heritage Institute is the nonprofit cultural and educational arm of Juneau-based Sealaska Corp., a regional Native corporation.
