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
