This is so great, congratulations Abe! I sit on a board with Abe, and have worked with him on a few occasions. He is not only a brilliant artist, he is a man with vision. Very pleased he has a show in his home Territory.
His elaborate soapstone carvings and bronze sculptures have graced galleries around the world, including the Smithsonian in Washington. Now Abraham Ruben’s work is returning to the Northwest Territories. His new exhibit opened at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre in Yellowknife. As Kate Kyle reports it’s the largest showing of his work ever held in the territory.NOTE: Ruben called to point out that his work explores the interaction between Vikings and the ancestors of the Inuvialuit (the ancient Inuit) — as distinct from the present day Inuvialuit, as we say in this piece.

This has been a week of loss for the Inuit artistic community. My heartfelt condolences go out to family and friends of the beautiful Joey Ammaq, talented musician, father and husband and member of ArtCirq, who went well before his time, and the great sculptor Kiawak Ashoona who left us a legacy of art to remember him by, and I’ve now just learned that Inuit art champion and gallery owner, Judy Kardosh has passed. Nakurmiik to all of you, you will be missed. Continue readingPosted in News | Tagged artists, canadas north, community, FBRSS, inuit art | Comments Off
