Inuit Art Symposium

Carole and I (and printmaking prof Melissa Schulenburg) are heading to Toronto tomorrow to attend the Inuit Modern Symposium at the Art Gallery of Ontario on Saturday.  One of the most important artists from Cape Dorset, Kenojuak Ashevak, will be there, as will David Ruben Piqtouken and Jimmy Manning.  David and Jimmy both came to SLU some years ago, as did Kavavaow Mannomee.  David’s beautiful Inuksuit sits at the entrance to the Canadian Embassy gallery in Washington, DC, where the gallery presented our 50-year anniversary Cape Dorset exhibition last year in 2010.  Carole and I passed the sculpture every day as we installed the show.
