Since 1996 Susan and Michael Peters have been showcasing the highest quality Native art from the Northwest Coast and throughout Alaska in their homey shop, Arctic Dreams, located on historic Mission Street just a short walk from the cruise ship docks.

The Peters are recognized as experts on Alaskan art and you can experience a cross-section of it in their gallery. Find exquisite items ranging from scrimshaw and baleen to silver jewelry with ivory and gemstones. Michael and Susan have traveled the state and along the Northwest Coast and are well-known for purchasing art that is authentic and culturally accurate.

That’s what you’ll find when you peruse this gallery; the selection of items itself will give you an overview of the range of styles and items used in Native art. The pricing reflects the rare and exquisite craftsmanship, which some describe as “nothing but the best in Alaska Native art.” And if you don’t find just what you like, the Peters can help you commission a piece from a Native artist who will turn your own vision into a finely-crafted work of art.
