Inuit Prints: Japanese Influence | Opening at the IKG Thursday

ikg_ip_01

 

This exhibition is a groundbreaking inquiry into Japanese influences in the early years of the Cape Dorset print studio, the oldest and most successful printmaking enterprise in Canada’s Far North. The exhibition also focuses particular attention on the late James Houston, the Canadian artist and government employee who in 1958 forged this remarkable link between printmakers in Japan and the Canadian Arctic.

Read more about the exhibition HERE. There will also be an informal talk by Ronald Hawker During the opening this Thursday evening. Not to be missed!
