2017 Cape Dorset Annual Graphics Collection

Canada House Gallery is the official host gallery for the 2017 Cape Dorset Annual Graphics Collection. As such, we will have editions 1 & 3 of each print.

We are accepting reservations today - call us at 1-800-419-1298 with your choices!

The official release is Saturday, October, 21, 2017.


"On a recent trip to Cape Dorset, I sat down with the artists and printmakers of Kinngait Studios in hopes of learning more about the inspirations and processes behind their work in the 58th Annual Print Collection.

I quickly learned that their artwork goes beyond aesthetics. Unlike many Southern artists, the artists from this picturesque hamlet in Nunavut seldom receive formal training in studio arts, so their artistic practices are largely informed by mentorship and collaborations with the community.

The resulting prints simultaneously embody tradition and contemporaneity, creating a captivating visual record of both history and present day culture of Kinngait."

Arctic Flight

What do you think of first when you hear the word "arctic"? Polar Bears. Walrus. Narwhals. Caribou. All of the BIG names in the frozen north, right?

Allow us introduce you to Arctic birds. Migratory by nature, only 3 over-winter in the harsh environment on the tundra: Snowy owls, ravens & ptarmigans. Buntings. Loons. Sandpipers. Geese. And terns: these are just a few of the 100+ species of avian beings that live part- time in the Arctic. Typically considered a vast wasteland of ice, snow & permafrost, birds are vital to the ecology of the tundra. Pollinators, waders, hunters, & seed-carriers, birds also provide for the Inuit with eggs, meat and feathers and bones that are fashioned into tools.

Represented here in stone, textiles and on paper, we pay homage to these vital instruments of Arctic ecology.

"It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds." - Aesop

Painterly Pursuits

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary." – Pablo Picasso

This online collection of painterly works represents numerous talents whose art practice continues to appear on our gallery walls.

The act of creating fine art is usually a solitary process; one of time spent gathering subject material, digesting the landscapes witnessed, sketched, photographed, traveled in & experienced.

The techniques used in the creative process are as diverse as these artists: a 15th C. method of layering oil paint and varnish, squeezing tubes of 21st C. acrylics onto a makeshift palette to blend the same colour as a glacial lake, taking flight with experienced pilots to get you close enough to capture dawn light reflecting off snow-covered mountain faces, extensive study of colour theory & using sketch books to create the perfect compositions to plot out how those hues will translate on canvas.

We are privileged to share the artistic visions created by these talented Canadian artists. Every day.

Cameron Bird
WILD

Cameron Bird has grown up with a passion for the outdoors. Whether it was a family camping trip to the west coast of British Columbia, a hunting excursion deep into the backwoods of the northern interior or time spent exploring northern Ontario on his grandparents' farm, Cameron developed a love for nature and its surroundings at an early age. This love and passion has grown over the years and has become the foundation of the artist so many have come to know today. This is our inaugural solo exhibition for Cameron Bird – we are honoured to present his oil paintings to our collectors and friends.

Fleeting Moment: Figure, Animal, Land


Exhibition runs Wed March 1 – Tues March 14

Artist's reception Saturday March 4, 2-5pm


Fleeting Moment: Figure, Animal, Land

In this new series of work my goal was to break rules that I have set up for myself over the years. I wanted to think about how to paint time. I wanted to paint fleeting moments,so I set myself up for a challenge. Can I paint a figure dancing? Can I paint a sun beam through a forest wall? I wanted to break self inflicted rules and see what happens.

What I discovered was a harmony between my approach to the landscape and those that inhabit it. To paint a figure in action within a landscape painting is not only natural, but it also creates a narrative within the painting. To paint a deer on an open plain gives the viewer a introduction to a story, a story with weather.

In this series I also use light to direct the viewer's gaze. This is perhaps an old tool — painters have been using the illusion of light in the picture since the Renaissance — but it's an important tool. By painting the light on the fur of a wolf, I draw the viewer to the wolf, following where the light falls. It's the same with the snow on a mountain peak or in the white of an ocean wave — the light keeps the viewer in the painting.

These paintings are all connected. Are they sharing a time of day? A season over western Canada? Something joins them together. I hope it's time. I hope it's that fleeting moment where we see the scene, and we suddenly feel the change that is already coming.
