Artwork produced by Inuit artists that records their life and traditions, reflecting their relationship with the frozen wilderness around them and the melding of the physical and spiritual world in everyday life, will be on display at the White Hall Community Center in White Hall Feb. 26 from noon to 7 p.m. and Feb. 27 from 12 noon to 5 p.m.
The show, featuring prints, is the second in a five-part Inuit Art Exhibit curated by Judith Varney Burch. Subsequent programs at WHCC include: March 26-27, Stone Sculpture of the Arctic; April 23-24, Selected Artists of the Arctic; May 21-22, an Inuit Multimedia Exhibition.
The prints celebrate the wilderness and mysticism of the Arctic, said Burch. “The Arctic, the last ecosystem discovered, is now at severe risk due to climate change. Viewing Inuit art draws us into a culture determined to persevere and reminds us how connected we once were to nature.”
