New Works Now Exhibiting
@Inuit Gallery

The Inuit Gallery is pleased to spotlight the work of three artists:
Dene carver, John Sabourin, Dakota/Ojibwa painter, Linus Woods, and Nunavut-based painter/print maker Janet Ripley Armstrong.

Working primarily in chlorite, a stone that appears jet black when polished, John Sabourin’s carving is very strong and clean, with beautiful fluid lines. The new collection features examples of his composition works, such as Muskox Family, the bird spiral compositions, his lovely Animal Spiral, and single or small-figure groups, such as his Grizzly Bear or Struggling with Wolf.
