To the Open Studio community,

The COVID-19 situation continues to evolve and in alignment with the directives of the government and health authorities, Open Studio will not be reopening on April 7 as initially planned. It is not easy for us to predict how long our physical space/studio will remain closed, and we will reopen as soon as it is safe and possible to do so.

Together Apart – Thank You

Thank you to our community of artists, board members, staff, volunteers, partners, collaborators, donors and sponsors. We miss seeing you and we cannot wait to be back in our studio space. We are so thankful for your support and hope you are staying healthy and safe.

The Open Studio Team

Where She Lives brings together bold, graphic printmaking by three female artists working out of the WBEC Kinngait Studios, Cape Dorset, Nunavut. Where She Lives at once refers to Ningiukulu Teevee, Saimaiyu Akesuk and Ooloosie Saila’s representations of landscapes, wildlife and everyday ephemera, but also alludes to interior worlds and places of imagination, connecting to the artists’ imagery of magic, legends and mythology, all rendered with vibrant colour and visionary line work.

Thank you to Dorset Fine Arts for lending works for this exhibition.
