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.

'Keewatin Women in Stone' celebrates the lives of two very different Nunavut artists from the Keewatin region north-west of the Hudsons Bay. Camille Iquilq (1963-2005) and Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetok (1934-2012) are representative of two generations and very different upbringings. Lucy was born on the land and experienced the nomadic and traditional way of life before settling in Arviat, whereas Camille was born and raised within the relative comfort of the community of Baker Lake. The collection is a selection of at least 30 stone sculptures from each artist, with pieces ranging from the early 1990s forward. The exhibition contrasts their individual styles yet highlights the same shared values with relationships and the strong bonds within the family.
