You will find works by favourite artists such as, Markoosie Papigatok, Ningeosiak Ashoona, Tony Oqutaq, Joanasie Manning, and Ashevak Adla. There are many others, including the highly regarded artist Abraham Anghik Ruben, OC., who has created some works specifically for this show. Also, an exciting new talent, Damien Ikualluq of Cambridge Bay, whose work is attracting the attention of many collectors, and one of the most original voices of the new generation of Cape Dorset artists, Pitseolak Qimirpik.
We are always excited to introduce new talents, who strive to keep Inuit art traditions alive. There are wonderful examples of birds, bears, dancing rabbits, whales and other arctic animals, as well as figures engaged in traditional activities. These have all been carved in a variety of materials including stone, antler, muskox horn and ivory. Shipping of ivory has restrictions.
We very much look forward to discussing Small Treasures with you.
All works will be available for purchase at 10 am, Vancouver time on Saturday, Jan 26th, 2019.
