March 30 – April 27, MARION SCOTT GALLERY presents Janet Nungnik: The Eagle’s Shadow
Posted on March 25, 2019
The Marion Scott Gallery is pleased to announce a major exhibition of works by Baker Lake’s Janet Nungnik. Opening March 30 and continuing until April 27, Janet Nungnik: The Eagle’s Shadow will comprise 15 colourful textile works produced over a period of 17 years. Collectively, Nungnik’s delicately embroidered and appliqued images tell her life story and that of her people, the Padlermiut, a small group of inland dwelling Inuit whose traditional territory was based to the south of Baker Lake, Nunavut. The exhibition includes the title work, a monumentally scaled wallhanging inspired by the artist’s childhood memory of close family members.
An opening reception to honour the artist will be held in the gallery on
Saturday, March 30
1:00 until 3:00 pm.
Janet Nungnik will be present.
