Jutai Toonoo and Jamasie Pitseolak, two of Canada’s most prominent Northern artists, will be in Vancouver this weekend. They’re in town for the launch of Sweet Innovation; an exhibition of Northern art at the Marion Scott Gallery.
Other featured artists include Cape Dorset’s Kenojuak Ashevak and Baker Lake’s Tony Anguhalluq.
Eye on the Arctic visitors may remember Jutai Toonoo from The New Raw series we filmed last year in Cape Dorset, Nunavut exploring the changing face of Northern art.

The weekend kicks off with a panel discussion between the artists and Norman Vorano, the curator of contemporary Inuit art at the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Gatineau, Québec.
