Images of the North presents work that shows images of transformation through the natural form of ancient whalebone vertebrae. Inuit artists transformed the material into compelling faces, portraits and spirits, some quite charming and others threatening. The theme of transition and invoking the spirits is also apparent in the collection of vintage prints by noted Cape Dorset artists Parr, Pitseolak and Lucy also on display.
