Feb. 16-May 12. The artists in Povungnituk, located in Arctic Quebec, have been recognized for over a quarter of a century for the quality of their print making and their distinctive style. The Povungnituk sculptures and prints present a cross section of tribal life and chronicle the history and legends of a people. They are occasionally humorous, often joyous and sometimes tragic. Characterized by crisp images of native animals and human figures set against stark backgrounds, many of the artworks reveal the rituals that have allowed the Inuit people to survive.
