The 38 prints on display each speak of a unique style and sensitivity, as well as of deep connection to the Inuit tradition and culture. As original and special as it is, it is also an intrinsic part of the fabric that makes this country, and as such, holds a particular place in its cultural development and international status.

To address the important role occupied by the Cape Dorset Annual Print Collection Exhibition in the creation of contemporary Inuit art, a conference entitled The Historical Perspectives on Contemporary Inuit Graphic Art will be held Saturday, October 25th at 1:30 PM; presented, in English, by Diana Perera, specialist in Inuit and First Nations art at the Canadian Guild of Crafts.

The artists represented are: Cee POOTOOGOOK, Itee POOTOOGOOK, Kakulu SAGGIAKTOK, Kudluajuk ASHOONA, Malaija POOTOOGOOK, Mayoreak ASHOONA, Ningeokuluk TEEVEE, Ohotaq MIKKIGAK, Papiara TUKIKI, Pitaloosie SAILA, Qavavau MANUMIE, Saimaiyu AKESUK, Shuvinai ASHOONA, Siassie KENNEALLY and Tim PITSIULAK.
