Palaya Qiatsuq, "Dancing Owl."
Dancing Owls series, February 23 to 25, 2010, Appleton Galleries
In late February, Appleton Galleries in Vancouver will host a carving demonstration by master carver Palaya Qiatsuq from Cape Dorset in Nunavut. Known for the light movement in his “Dancing Owls” series, the show is part of a project undertaken by the Nunavut government to bring their artists — carvers, weavers, and printmakers — to a wider public audience during the Winter Olympics. Qiatsuq will be carving at Appleton Galleries February 23 to 25.
