2023 Cape Dorset Annual Print Collection

Available October 21st – Contact the Gallery for Reservations

The 2023 print collection exemplifies both the steadfast skill and constant development present at Kinngait Studios. Along with many of the familiar celebrated artists, the studio introduces eight artists to the annual print collection. Inuit art enthusiasts will be familiar with Napachie Ashoona, Matthew, Kakee, and Pitsiulaq for their accomplishments in sculpture, and we are excited to display their capabilities as multidisciplinary artists. Josie’s work continues the artistic legacy of the Pootoogook clan, Napachie Toonoo’s invokes classic stonecut imagery, and Susie’s vivid style is aptly translated to print. Impressively, Ashley is making her mark as the youngest artist in the collection, at the age of 20. She follows in the footsteps of her great grandmother, Sheojuk Etidloie, and great grandfather, Pudlo Pudlat. Experimenting with colour and form, this collection displays the artists’ expertise in what makes a successful print and simultaneously challenges audiences’ expectations. The result is a series of prints that are familiar, yet refreshing.
