In 2015 an agreement was made between the Department of Culture and Heritage and WAG-Qaumajuq to loan approximately 7,400 pieces from Nunavut’s fine art collection.

This agreement creates a unique opportunity for the public to view these remarkable pieces, which had been in storage at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre for more than two decades. The art collection dates from the 1870s to the present and includes thousands of sculptures, prints, drawings, artifacts, and textiles by internationally-renowned artists such as Kenojuak Ashevak, Osuitok Ipeelee, Jesse Oonark, Kananginak Pootoogook, Parr, Pauta Saila, and Irene Avaalaaqiaq Tiktaalaaq.

Thank you for your patience as we continue migrating content to our new site. For more collection information, email us.

Institutionally, WAG-Qaumajuq is committed to acknowledging our colonial history and we are actively working to interrogate the Gallery’s colonial ways of being.
