Celebrating Elisapee Ishulutaq

For the first time, the museum exhibits drawings from the early career of Elisapee Ishulutaq to celebrate her recent induction into the Order of Canada.

Closing December 31, 2014.



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.

Closing September 14, 2014.


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.

Closing October 15, 2014.
