Owls: Inuit Art from Cape Dorset Boxed Notecards
In the Canadian Arctic territory of Nunavut, the artists of Cape Dorset have been making limited edition fine art prints since 1959. An array of techniques has long been available to the printmakers—etching and aquatint, copper engraving, stencil, and woodcut—but the studios’ mainstays are stonecut and lithography.
Whether regal and resplendent or playful and peeping, the owls that appear on these cards illustrate the unique styles of Ningiukulu Teevee, Kananginak Pootoogook, and Kenojuak Ashevak—three renowned Inuit artists from Cape Dorset.
