Artist Talk

Jill Amos Raine

My Time in Cape Dorset


Join us for an insightful talk by local artist Jill Amos Raine on Thursday, December 9. There will be a drinks reception at 5.30pm, followed by the talk at 6pm.

Jill will be discussing her time in Cape Dorset (Kinngait), Nunavut, in the Arctic territories of Canada. The settlement, which is considered the epicenter of contemporary Inuit art, is the subject of  The Shadow Land, currently on display in the Upper Mezzanine Gallery.

The exhibition focuses on stone cut prints from the 1960s, presenting artworks produced by the first generation of full-time Inuit artists based in Cape Dorset. Jill will discuss her time living and teaching English at the settlement with her husband, David Raine, during this time period.
