Susan Point is a Coast Salish artist from the Musqueam Nation in Vancouver, BC. Over the past three decades, she has been instrumental in re-establishing Coast Salish art in Canada and the United States. She draws inspiration from traditional motifs and themes and re-invents them in paper, glass, bronze, wood, concrete, polymer, stainless steel and cast iron. Point is well known for her exquisite gold and silver jewellery, printmaking and commissions for the Winter Olympic Games in 2010.

The Spirit Wrestler Gallery is currently featuring 20 glass works created by Point at the Pilchuck Glass School in 2002. She began preparing for the exhibition last year by working with glass artist Yves Trudeau of Studio One Glass, using a variety of etched and applied finishes and choosing bases for the pieces.

Point has been honoured with numerous awards, including the Order of Canada, a National Aboriginal Achievement Award, a YWCA Woman of Distinction Award, and a BC Creative Achievement Award. She has been appointed to the Royal Academy of Arts, elected to the International Women’s Forum and awarded honorary doctorates by the University of Victoria, Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia and Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
