Napachie Pootoogook “True North” exhibition

Feheley Fine Arts held the exhibition Napachie Pootoogook: True North in May 2014. The exhibition featured a fantastic selection of black ink pen drawings by Kinngait artist Napachie Pootoogook (1938–2002), completed in the mid-1990s. Napachie was the mother of artist Annie Pootoogook and her artistic influence became wonderfully evident in these particular drawings. On May 3, 2014, the gallery hosted a talk with curator Leslie Boyd, who discussed Napachie Pootoogook’s works and their impact on contemporary artists.
