Tlingit artist Calvin Morberg is one of a group exhibiting at Vancouver’s Inuit Gallery in Gastown.
The group, the Northern Cultural Expressions Society, was established in 2008 to support the development of First Nations carving traditions through its workshops and educational programs. Open to youths of all backgrounds, the carving program has become an integral part of the arts community in Whitehorse, Yukon, with several major commissions credited to the program as well as individual work by student carvers.
The Inuit Gallery exhibition, Carving Our Path, includes work by mentors Calvin Morberg and Jared Kane, and sculptures by student carvers. The show opens with a reception with artists attending on July 11, and runs to July 31, 2015.
The Inuit Gallery is exhibiting work by Kwakwaka’wakwartist Rande Cook from July 25 to August 21, 2015. His exhibition, Behind the Golden Veil, will launch with a reception on July 25; the artist will be present from 2-4 pm. For more, see http://inuit.com
