November 23, 2010 Accomplished Cape Dorset sculptor, designer, draftsman and printmaker Kananginak Pootoogook passed away today (1935-2010).

Kananginak Pootoogook was a part of the original four printers when James Houston brought printmaking to Baffin Island.  He worked in all media including silk-screen printing of textiles.

 As a prominent and involved community leader, he was instrumental in the the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative and served served for many years as President of its Board of Directors.

Kananginak was included in the first catalogued collection of Cape Dorset prints in 1959, and has been included in all but three annual collections since that time.

A Muskox sculpture is featured on this web site along with three original drawings by the artist, which are currently available.

Opening November 25, 2010 through to October 2, 2011, the MOA (Museum of Anthropology) in Vancouver, British Columbia is exhibiting Signed without Signature: works by Charles and Isabella Edenshaw, which will showcase Haida artist Darrell White's pendant on loan from Coastal Peoples Gallery.

The Raven and First Man pendant created in Argillite is embellished with precious abalone shell, catlanite and inlay of 18K yellow gold.  It represents the ancient Haida myth of Raven discovering First Man in the clamshell, and signifies the beginning of mankind in the new world.

The MOA exhibition will highlight the works of Charles and Isabella Edenshaw, who were prolific Haida carvers from the late 1800s to early 1900s.  Their work has influenced generations of Haida artists and some of the finest artisans today of whom many are direct descendents of this family, including Darrell White.  More details are available at www.moa.ubc.ca.

Coastal Peoples Gallery is honoured with the invitation from MOA to include Darrell White's pendant in this exhibition, and we welcome each of you to experience this event in person or online.
