Leah Pipe – My Call to You Is in the Wind
@Inuit Gallery

Sept 12 – Oct 3

The Inuit Gallery is pleased to present a beautiful new collection of paintings and drawings by Hazelton-based artist, Leah Pipe.

Pipe’s acrylic paintings on canvas have already attracted great admiration for her placement of ravens and other animals against a solid background, which has the effect of pushing the figure to the foreground so the viewer can appreciate the beauty of the animal and the quality of her brushwork.

In this new collection Leah further demonstrates not only her range in subjects but fully demonstrates her incredible technical skill as an artist.  The portfolio includes sensitively drawn images of First Nations women based on archival photographs.
