The Annual Print Collection from Cape Dorset is the much anticipated Inuit art event of the Fall season. A tradition since 1959, the collection presents the work of Cape Dorset’s talented graphic artists—both young and old working together in the co-operatively owned Kinngait Studios.
The 2006 print collection includes 34 images by 13 different artists. Familiar names such as Kenojuak Ashevak, Kananginak Pootoogook and Pitaloosie Saila are represented, along with newer artists who continue to develop their own individual styles such as Annie Pootoogook, a finalist for the Sobey Art Award 2006.
Sadly, both Meelia Kelly and Mialia Jaw are represented in the collection for the last time as they both passed away in April.
