Exhibition: Sculpture by Maudie Okittuq
January 23 - February 20
Alongside new drawings by Shuvinai Ashoona, we are thrilled to present work by another cutting-edge woman artist, Maudie Okittuq. Based in Talurjuaq (Taloyoak), Okittuq began carving in the late-1960s and has enjoyed an over fifty-year-long artistic career creating remarkable sculpture primarily out of stone. The transformations, shamans, and spirit figures in this delightful selection of work highlights not only Okittuq’s extraordinarily unique vision, but also her exceptional ability to translate the spirit world into stone.
