2018 Cape Dorset
Calendars help mark the passage of time and the Cape Dorset prints reproduced in this year’s version subtly suggest through colour and light the changing of the seasons. The prints themselves have changed a lot throughout the years. New techniques have been advanced, young innovative artists have been discovered and different and sometimes daring themes and subjects have been introduced to reflect a certain period in time. Despite these changes, Cape Dorset prints have always maintained an unassuming intimacy. We can become easily attached to the image hanging on the wall when we’re changing the dates for birthdays or appointments or special occasions and after 30 days have passed it’s often with reluctance that we turn the page over to reveal a very different image for the following month. Chances are through that the next image will soon begin to captivate us as well. That is the timeless charm of Cape Dorset prints.
