Riddell Centre - RC 136 Fifth Parallel Gallery
This exhibition provides a rare opportunity to view Inuit works on paper from the University of Regina President’s Art Collection, Shumiatcher Donation. Including artwork representative of Inuit printmaking’s early days, this exhibition features work by pioneering Cape Dorset artists, such as Eegyvudluk Pootoogook, Kiakshuk, Lukta Qiatsuk, Iyola Kingwatsiak, Parr, Pudlo Pudlat and Kenojuak Ashevak. A small representation of work from several other northern co-operatives are also represented. Steeped with the artists’ dreams, memories, stories, beliefs and the poetry of everyday life, Stonecuts and Sealskins shares a fragment of the vocabulary of the North.
