2019 Cape Dorset Print Collection Sale
Saturday, October 19 to Saturday, November 16
Located on the southern tip of Baffin Island, Cape Dorset is hailed as the most artistic community in Canada and the undisputed capital of Inuit art. Each year, the art created at Kinngait Studios is distributed through the Dorset Fine Arts international network of galleries.
For 60 years, Kinngait and Dorset Fine Arts has provided a global community with this annual release of extraordinary works in lithography, etching, stone cut, stencil, and screen print.
This presentation is a natural fit for the WAG, which holds the world’s largest public collection of contemporary Inuit art. To celebrate the art and to honour the Inuit, the WAG is building an Inuit Art Centre, the first of its kind. For more information, visit inuit.wag.ca
