To Apr 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. Opening May 11 Tony Anguhalluq: Life on the Land.
Now in its 42nd year of operation, the Marion Scott Gallery has a long history of showcasing the best of contemporary art from the Canadian North. Specializing in both new and historical expressions from the Arctic in a range of media, the Gallery is committed to positioning the work of Canada’s Inuit artists within a national and international contemporary artistic framework. We work closely with a select group of contemporary artists from Cape Dorset, Baker Lake and other northern communities, presenting their work in both solo and thematic exhibitions with the aim of bringing their unique visions and dynamic sensibilities to the public’s attention.
