One Collector's Vision: Inuit Prints 1960-1996
Apr 6 – May 31, 2016
Reception Thursday, May 5 from 6 to 8 pm
We are excited to offer twenty-one prints from Cape Dorset, Baker Lake and Povungnituk, all from a single collection. All prints are handsomely framed, ready to hang on your wall. This exceptional selection includes five prints by Kenojuak Ashevak, spanning three decades of her career, including Flower Bird, one of her iconic owls. The collection also includes Mary Igiu's masterpiece People of the Sea, from 1961, with its dramatic profile breaking the frame of the image on the left side and surreal spirits reminiscent of Dog sees the spirits. Povungnituk is represented by one of the earliest experimental prints, Legend, which features the intriguing image of a wolf-man in transformation (the left arm and leg are human, while the right limbs are vulpine) wearing a parka and carrying a fishing jig.
