Arts Whistler has kindly let us share these fantastic videos introducing Whistler artists – you can see the original Backdrop Sessions post on The Gallery at the Arts Centre website.

The Gallery at Millennium Place chats with Whistler stoneware and pottery artist Vincent Massey.

With his roots in Whistler’s 60s ski bum history, Vincent Massey has grown into a popular stoneware craftsman and potter. A look inside his charming studio reveals how devoted Vincent is to both his craft and the Whistler arts community, continuing to give back through mentorship. Drawing inspiration from cherished pieces, Vincent continuously tries new things to generate the one-of-a-kind works he is known for. His high quality stoneware and pottery can be found in the Mountain Galleries at the Fairmont Whistler.

Nikkey got her start in Whistler as an outdoor guide and the habit of talking about the place has clearly stuck. Whistler’s general laid-back lifestyle and immediate access to fun is what’s kept her around. When not hanging out on the Whistler Insider team Nikkey works as a freelance creative for outdoor and wellness brands. Nikkey’s favourite Whistler animal is the marmot- she just wants to pinch those fluffy cheeks! (but never would because she respects wildlife and really likes having her fingers attached to her hands.)
