PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Join us at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, as we share stories that have evoked and shaped the many unique art forms of the north. Together we will look at carvings, prints and wall-hangings and consider the innovative techniques and materials used by these artists. The colourful prints of Pitaloosie Salia, a printmaker from Cape Dorset, will feature prominently in this tour as Salia is exhibiting her work in the gallery. She has worked as an artist for over 60 years and has created 1,450 drawings and over 165 prints in her lifetime.
