Using medium as a starting point, this exhibition explores works produced in the Nunavut community of Sanikiluaq. As a small, island community with close cultural ties to Nunavik, artistic expression in Sanikiluaq takes on a variety of subjects using both argillite and the revived tradition of basketmaking.
The Matchbox Gallery: A Retrospective
Celebrating the unique legacy of long-running Matchbox Gallery in Kangiqliniq (Rankin Inlet), this exhibition looks at the wide range of artistic production from one studio. Most well known for being the only active ceramics-producing studio in the North, the Matchbox Gallery’s artists also produce two-dimensional works on paper. Both art forms are influenced by the studio’s particular collaborative approach, a facet of the work that is rarely explored in depth.
