The 2013 Inuit Art Calendar features some of the best work of the women artists of Cape Dorset and celebrates their extraordinary contributions to the Kinngait Studios. The striking colours and designs of Kenojuak Ashevak, Mayoreak Ashoona, Ningeokuluk Teevee, Annie Pootoogook and their fellow artists jump off the page in this collection of 12 strong images.
Cape Dorset, also known as Kinngait (pronounced “King-ite”) for its high, rolling hills, is a thriving Inuit community on the southwest coast of Baffin Island in the Canadian Arctic territory of Nunavut. The West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative was formed and incorporated there in 1959. The Kinngait Studios, which house the co-operative’s graphic arts program, are the longest continually running print studios in Canada. The studios are internationally renowned for excellence and innovation in Inuit graphic art.
