Parr (1893 - 1969)
For most of his life, Parr lived on the land. However, after a serious hunting accident he settled permanently in Kinngait in 1961, where he began drawing at age 68. During his career, Parr produced over 2000 drawings and contributed 34 prints to the Cape Dorset annual print collections. His drawings are direct and honest, and his designs of animals and hunters are drawn in a distinctive, bold style, and portray a disappearing way of life.
Anirnik Oshuitoq (1902-1983)
Anirnik grew up in many camps near Kimmirut (Lake Harbour, Nunvavut) and settled with her daughter, the artist Ningeeuga Oshuitoq, and her family in Kinngait, in the early 1960’s. It was during this period that Anirnik began to draw. Her compositions drew from the spirit world, and her work was represented almost annually in the Cape Dorset print collections.
Sharni Pootoogook (Sharnee) (1922– 2003)
Sharni Pootoogook was born in Kinngait in 1922. Sharni was introduced to graphic arts and printmaking when the Kinngait printmaking program was established in the late 1950s. Her work quickly gained attention, and was included in the Cape Dorset 1964/1965 and 1966 annual print collections.
