Inuk Style on display now at the Winnipeg Art Gallery

A recently opened exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery, called Inuk Style, includes these unique mittens made by Mona Rebecca Ittiraqtaataq of Taloyoak in 1976. The mittens integrated materials, dyed from lichen and other plants found around the area. They’re part of the Government of Nunavut Fine Art Collection, on long-term loan to the WAG. The Inuk Style exhibition, featuring 24 known Inuit artists, also includes a beaded amauti from Arviat by Ulayok Lucy Kaviok, a parka by Baker Lake’s Jessie Oonark and jewellery by many artists, including Papiara Tukiki, Sakkiasseee Anaija, and William Ukpatiku. The exhibition will remain on display at the WAG, located at 300 Memorial Blvd. in Winnipeg, until 2021. (Photo by Jocelyn Piirainen)
