Finding out about Inuits aside from looking at my illustrations!

There is now less than a week to go before the exhibition ‘The Land That Faces Away From The Sun: Changing Lives on Baffin Island‘ opens.

The title of the exhibition is a rough translation of the place where the museum’s Inuit collection comes from – Baffin Island.

I’m looking forward to seeing what people think to my work and if they will be as interested as I am in the objects I chose to display. I’m also very pleased that the exhibition team and volunteers have worked so hard to help me make this interesting for everyone – including working out how to show this fantastic film about Arthur Canon Turner’s life on Baffin Island in moving image:

The film has everything from football frenzy in the snow to husky dogs in it!

Not only is there a feast for the eyes in the exhibition, the team and I have also organised for some games, tactile materials to touch and specially made aroma boxes for visitors to really experience life in Baffinland – we hope to see you there!

‘The Land That Faces Away From The Sun: Changing Lives on Baffin Island’ opens from Saturday 7th February at Nuneaton Museum & Art Gallery. Find out about the exhibition and related museum events here.

  1. So looking forward to it – a ‘must see’ exhibition that will showcase some amazing artefacts, illustrations from an insightful, talented artist; and a great example of museum excellence.
