Art Sterritt, who also goes by the name Myanxa, trained as a carver and printmaker at ‘Ksan, a historical village, museum, and art school that opened in 1970 near the former nineteenth-century village of Gitanmaax. Art attended ‘Ksan from 1970 to 1972 and learned carving, as well as jewellery engraving, from established Gitxsan artists Walter Harris and Earl Muldoe. Totem poles by Art can be found in the collections of the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Hull and Toronto’s Royal Ontario Museum. In 1973, Art produced a series of limited edition silkscreen prints on paper through Canadian Native Prints Limited. In 2003, Art accepted a position as Executive Director of the Coastal First Nations organization, and he has been heavily involved in politics since that time. Art resides in Prince Rupert and is still active as a maker of ceremonial headdresses and totem poles for the Gitxsan and Wet’suwet’en peoples.
