Walk through “Seasons of the Sun” with Augatnaaq Eccles

June 8, 2023

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Take an excursion through the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of spring, summer and fall in Inuit Nunangat.

Join us for a walk-through of Seasons of the Sun with curator and artist Augatnaaq Eccles, accompanied by Danielle Printup and special guest Elder Zippie Nochasak. Admission is free and everyone is welcome!

Augatnaaq will bring us through artworks that depict spring, summer and fall – months that are filled with activities that tie together Inuit seasonal traditions and new traditions that bring community and family together.  

Augatnaaq, Danielle and Zippie  will share memories, recount stories and discuss embodied relationships to land. 

Light refreshments will be provided. 

Access This event will require moving around the gallery space. Light chairs are available. A microphone will be used.
