This month we host a special Inuit sculpture identification night, with participants encouraged to bring carvings from their personal collections for a show and tell. Guest speaker Fraser Hope, who worked as an educator in the North for twenty years, presents an overview of the communities in the vast northern landscape and their various carving styles.
