Boldly Baker Lake: Barnabus Arnasungaaq
Sunday March 1st – Saturday August 29th
Drawing on recent acquisitions, old favourites, and generous loans from private collectors, this exhibit will explore one of Qamani’tuaq’s (Baker Lake’s) most recognizable artists, Barnabus Arnasungaaq, and the way he contributed to the region’s unique monumental yet minimal style that brings the natural forms of the hard local stone to life.

We have displayed select pieces by this master artists since we opened in 2007, many of which are visitor favourites. But, November 20, 2015 will mark the first time that the museum will feature an exhibition dedicated to the full range of his art production. We are currently raising funds to create an exhibition catalogue to accompany the show, with a fundraising goal is $10, 000.
