Donald Ellis Gallery
The internationally pre-eminent dealer in the field of historical Native American art

Donald Ellis Gallery is widely considered the internationally pre-eminent dealer in the field of historical Native American art. Founded in 1976, the gallery maintains a particular emphasis on the art of the Northwest Coast, Inuit and Plains cultures.

A recognized authority in the field, Donald Ellis has been pivotal in raising international awareness of the fundamental contributions of Indigenous North American cultures to the history of art. In 2018, the gallery proudly co-presented Moon Dancers: Yup'ik Masks and the Surrealists, showcasing the formative role Yup’ik dance masks played in the stylistic innovation and worldview of the Surrealists. The gallery has also been instrumental in shaping institutional interest in Plains Indian Ledger art, bringing these unique artistic records of North American history to public attention for the first time since 1996.

Donald Ellis Gallery is actively supporting Indigenous charities and cultural initiatives dedicated to the resurgence of Indigenous languages and culture in Canada and the US. For more information please visit our website.
