The Marion Scott Gallery is pleased to announce a major exhibition of works by Baker Lake’s Janet Nungnik. Opening March 30 and continuing through April 27, Janet Nungnik: The Eagle’s Shadow brings together 15 colourful textile works produced over a 17-year period. Collectively, Janet Nungnik’s delicately embroidered and appliquéd images tell her life story and that of her people, the Padlermiut, a small group of inland dwelling Inuit whose traditional territory was based to the south of Baker Lake, Nunavut. The exhibition includes the title work, a monumentally scaled wallhanging based on the artist’s childhood memory of close family members. An opening reception for the artist will be held in the gallery on Saturday March 30 from 1:00 until 3:00 pm.
