Germaine Arnaktauyok: Creating a visual language

WAG-Qaumajuq Curator of Inuit Art, Darlene Coward Wight, wrote an article for Above & Beyond – Canada’s Arctic Journal about Germaine Arnaktauyok.

“In 1998, I worked with Germaine on her first solo exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery and she became the Gallery’s ninth Artist-in-Residence…For over 60 years, Germaine has continued to develop artistically and professionally. She has charted her own course and created her own visual language. A life-long interest in her own unique Inuit culture has been an inspiration to many younger artists.”
