Collection privée, Vancouver
Leona Lattimer was not only one of the leading gallerists in Vancouver, she was also instrumental in building the Northwest Coast Indigenous art market. In 1976, she was named manager of the Museum of Vancouver giftshop and quickly turned it into the highest-grossing giftshop in Canada. She outgrew her position at the museum by the early Eighties and opened the Leona Lattimer Gallery in 1986, just in time for Expo 86. Her gallery quickly became the prime destination in the Pacific Northwest for authentic, collectible Indigenous art.
Leona passed away on Saturday June 25th, 2022 in Vancouver, BC. Leona and her husband David Lattimer lived all over BC, including many small communities where they made long-lasting friendships. Through her relationships with Indigenous artists throughout BC, she was able help create the thriving Northwest Coast Indigenous art market we know today. The hundreds of artists and thousands of customers Leona met and worked with were her true passion and were what helped form the lifelong friendships she had.
Over the decades, Leona collected pieces herself. These were exceptional artworks that both met her discriminating standards and spoke to her refined aesthetic taste. Works from the collection of Leona Lattimer were acquired from the artists directly. To own an artwork from the Leona Lattimer Collection is to own a piece of Vancouver history.
