TRURO - ‘Landscape of the Inuit: A Collection of Inuit Art' is the newest exhibition at the Visual Voice Fine Art's gallery.
Running from Oct. 20 to Nov. 16, the exhibit features a collection of art by Judith J. Leidl, who was the Pangnirtung Community Print Collection arts advisor from 2001 to 2007 in the Uqqurmiut Centre for the Arts and Crafts on Baffin Island.
The exhibit features hand-pulled limited edition prints, original paintings, serpentine sculptures and jewelry created by artisans from Canada's far north - Andrew Qappik, Enookie Akulukjuk, Malaya Pitsiulak, Jaco Ishulutak, Leeta Alivaktuk, Ida Karpik, Tommy Angnakak.
Leidl will also have some of her work created in and inspired by the Arctic landscape on display.
The artwork will feature traditional motifs such as animal imagery and Inuit mythology and explores the strong connection Inuit people have to the land.
An opening reception with appetizers will be held on Oct. 20 from 7 to 9 p.m.
The opening is free of charge to everyone.
