REFLECTIONS OF THE NORTH
PORTRAITS OF NORTHERN PEOPLE AND THE LANDS THEY LIVE UPONEXHIBITION OPENING JUNE 2016
This narrative collection by accomplished and award-winning artist Kirk Sauer draws on his many years of teaching, painting and recording elements of culture and society of the people of Canada’s north. Illustrating the people of the north, who have resided on the land for generations and their ways of co-existing with nature in their efforts to survive and flourish, this body of art is grounded in the relational trust between community members and the artist. At once educational, entertaining, and insightful, Reflections of the North has the power to engage all ages at a time when many questions are being asked about the north, and when the steadily increasing demands for resource development pose a threat to both the land and its people.
