The drawings, paintings, and prints of William Noah (b. 1943) reflect his own affinity for the land and animals of the Kitchecut area. Born in Back River, Noah is currently based in Qamani’tuaq (Baker Lake) where he has cemented himself as a key figure not only in the studio, but as a prominent member of the community. He acted as a territorial level politician and a member of the Northwest Territories Legislature in the early 1980s. Noah, along with four other artists formed a collective entitled the Art and Cold Cash Collective. Together they held a number of group exhibitions.
Noah established his prominence as a graphic artist in the very early Baker Lake Graphic Collections. He also comes from an artistic family: his mother was renowned graphic artist Jessie Oonark, and his siblings include accomplished artists Nancy Pukingrnak, Victoria Mamnguqsualuk, and Janet Kigusiuq.
