Shuvinai Ashoona: April 17–30

We were chuffed to be able to host Shuvinai Ashoona from Cape Dorset, Nunavut in collaboration with the famed Kinngait Studios as our 6th visiting artist. Accompanied by printer Niveaksie Quvianaqtuliaq, Shuvinai and Niv worked in the NSCAD printmaking studios with Jill Graham over two weeks to create a litho inspired by her first trip to Nova Scotia.

Shuvinai Ashoona is best known for her highly personal and imaginative drawings, with imagery ranging from monstrous and fantastical visions to closely observed naturalistic scenes of her Inuit culture and home community at Kinngait (also known as Cape Dorset), Nunavut
