Fall 2020
This exhibition highlights some of the many sculptures in the Gallery’s collection made of bone.

The bone is from a variety of animals and demonstrates the imagination of the artists who worked with the eccentric shapes of the raw material. The cultural significance of bone (the most enduring element of the body; symbol of rebirth of shaman) is explored in drawings by William Noah that will be included, as well as the economic impact of whaling in a number of Pangnirtung prints. Sculptural works will be by artists from across the Canadian Arctic, and particularly from Taloyoak and Gjoa Haven.

The Inuit art centre has a new name
A group of Indigenous language keepers and elders gathered to name the Inuit art centre building and the spaces within. Qaumajuq meaning "it is bright, it is lit" is the new name for the centre.
