Northern Exposure 2012

Northern Exposure 2012

Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art

May 26 - June 16, 2012

The Spirit Wrestler Gallery is pleased to host the 6th annual Northern Exposure exhibition representing the graduating students and instructors of the Freda Diesing School of Northwest Coast Art (Northwest Community College, Terrace, BC). The school continues to widen its mandate and now has a network that includes Maori colleges in New Zealand, the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver, The YVR Art Foundation scholarship program (Vancouver International Airport), partnerships with various museums and cultural centres throughout British Columbia and a guest lecture series including prominent Northwest Coast artists.

Early in the development of their curriculum, the Spirit Wrestler Gallery was approached about hosting a graduating exhibition that would offer the students the opportunity to learn about the responsibilities of both the artist and the gallery in preparing for a major exhibition. Each year the gallery exhibition is timed to coincide with the presentation of the YVR Art Foundation Scholarship and the students try to make the trip to Vancouver for both events.

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.
