For over 60 years, Pitaloosie Saila has contributed to the Cape Dorset print collections.

She is the sole remaining active artist from the earliest years of printmaking in the community with a remarkable body of work: roughly 1,450 drawings and over 165 prints. The artist is represented in every major museum collection in Canada, and her work is exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. Saila—along with her late husband Pauta, a distinguished sculptor—was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2004. In her first retrospective exhibition in a public gallery, Pitaloosie Saila: A Personal Journey features 32 prints, centred around themes of women and family, shamans, birds, and life experiences.
