Although it's still about a month and a half off, I see that this year's Cape Dorset prints can now be seen online. Go here if you want to take a look at them.
This the the 50th anniversary of the Cape Dorset collection, so this year is a big deal for them. We've looked at the collection online already and there are two that we like.
This one is Cathy's favourite.
And this one would be mine.
Of course, it's kind of a moot point. Barring something strange happenings we won't be buying a Dorset print this year. We've bought prints each of the past two years. I'm not saying they're not worth it, but we have spent quite a bit of money this year (we got the Visa bill for Australia on Friday. Gah) and we have virtually no wall space left to hang anything else.
Plus while it's a nice show and I'm sure many people will find things to like in it, but there's nothing there that leaps out and says "we must have that" like the past two shows. Still, if you're in Iqaluit, I encourage you to go to the museum and see the show when it opens which will be, I think, around the middle of October. The artwork is spectacular and you can get quite a nice print and a reasonable price if you're looking for one.
