The year’s major Inuit exhibition entitled Baffin Island opens on July 23. 

As its title suggests, Baffin Island encompasses an entire Arctic region, in contrast to earlier WAG exhibitions that had tended to focus on settlements. Baffin Island surveys artists working from a plurality of settlements, such as Arctic Bay, Clyde River, Frobisher Bay, Lake Harbour, and Pangnirtung. Artists include Ennutsiak (1896–1967), Mosesee Kolola (1930–1985), Nuyaliaq Qimirpik (1937–2007), and others.
