Exhibition: The Co-op
September 13 - October 5
The Co-op, now known as the Kinngait Studios which are part of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative, have been intimately involved in the lives of the artists in Cape Dorset for the past 60 years. The studios have provided working spaces, communal encouragement and opportunities for skills development. Generations of artists have celebrated the ‘Co-op’ in drawings with portraits of their colleagues and depictions of the buildings and everyday operations.
