Nunavut artist Janet Nungnik’s textile works are on exhibition at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection through August, the artist’s solo museum debut. With their radiant colour and ravishingly detailed handiwork, these works celebrate the joys of life in the North.

Nungnik’s embroidered and appliqued images tell the story of her life and that of her people, the Padlermiut, a small group of inland- dwelling Inuit whose traditional territory lay to the south of Baker Lake, Nunavut – exhibition notes.

Revelations, the exhibition, more information here.

At Marion Scott Gallery, here.
