POP UP SHOP HOURS
Closing Reception Friday March 22 5-9pm
This March, the Nunavut Arts and Crafts Association in partnership with the Arts Council of Windsor & Region presents Tujjak: Nunavut Art Pop-Up Shop – an opportunity to experience beautiful, contemporary works sourced from Canada’s most creative region.
Nunavut features the highest concentration of artists in all of Canada, many of whom come from families with rich artistic traditions and styles developed over decades and sometimes centuries of making. Works presented are representative of the diverse range of traditional and contemporary practices in today’s North. Jewellery, textiles, wearable art, photography, printmaking and sculptural works will populate the gallery space in a specially designed environment.
In Inuktitut (the Inuit language), Tujjak is an island where one lands and makes a temporary camp – an apt metaphor for a temporary shop featuring the work of Nunavummiut artists. In the spirit of connecting Northern artists and their works with Canada’s most Southern city, a public celebration and reception will be held, followed by a series of workshops.
Closing Reception March 22 5-9pm:
Friday, March 8th, 7-10pm
Featuring foods from the North.
The Arts Council Windsor & Region would like to thank the Ontario Arts Council and the City of Windsor for their ongoing support. We would also like to thank our generous reception sponsors for providing the beers and wines. The reception on March 8th will feature Oxley Estate Winery’s Weather Rock Cabernet Franc and Oxley Pinot Gris and Walkerville Brewery’s Honest Lager and Easy Stout.
