Cape Dorset Prints 2007

Cape Dorset Prints 2007

Annual Print Collection

October 19 - November 8, 2007

“The annual print collection from the Kinngait Studios in Cape Dorset has represented the work of many different artists over the years, each bringing their own unique style and perspective to their work. Many are now gone, and a blend of old and new voices now make up the Cape Dorset stable. Some, like Kenojuak Ashevak, Kananginak Pootoogook, Kakulu Saggiaktok and Pitaloosie Saila have been active in the studios for decades now, and they have created and sustained the platform on which younger artists like Annie Pootoogook, Suvinai Ashoona and Ningeokuluk Teevee now stand, influenced by both their cultural traditions and the increasingly modern community.”
— from the foreword by Leslie Boyd Ryan

Current Exhibition

Keewatin Women In Stone - Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetuk

Keewatin Women In Stone - Lucy Tasseor Tutsweetuk

March 14 - April 4, 2015

'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.
