Luke and Carola Filmer owners Blackwater Trading Co. art gallery gift shop antiques located in Gig Harbor WA

Blackwater Fish Replicas of Salmon Steelhead and Trout painted by Luke Filmer Washington State

A passion for the Pacific Northwest

When we started Blackwater Trading Co. in 1998, we only featured custom, hand-painted fish replica sculptures by wildlife artist Luke Filmer.  Then in late 2014 we added a gallery & gift shop showcasing over 30 Pacific Northwest artists.

In addition to original art, we also carry top-quality gift items all designed to align with your “Northwest Style”.  

Why the name Blackwater?   Inspired by the world-famous Blackwater River located in BC, Canada, not only because it is a world class fly-fishing river, but also because for centuries it served as a major trade route between First Nation communities.  

Please stop by when you are in Gig Harbor, WA and say "Hi". - Luke & Carola Filmer
