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.
Join us at the gallery on Thursday, 1 March,from 6pm-8pm.
An exhibition of fine Inuit carvings is on display in the gallery throughout the month of March.
