Featured artists: Marjorie Agluvak, Irene Avaalaaqiaq, Mary Tookanachiak, and Marion Tuu’luq
Curated by Sally Frater
Drawing on the Art Gallery of Guelph’s permanent collection, Pattern and Form highlights wall hangings created by textile artists Marjorie Agluvak, Irene Avaalaaqiaq, Mary Tookanachiak, and Marion Tuu’luq. Showcasing the stylistic turns that mark each of their respective practices, the installation underscores the artists’ shared engagement with medium, myth, and the natural world in ways that blur the boundaries between the real and imagined.
Pattern and Form is organized by the Art Gallery of Guelph and curated by Sally Frater, Curator of Contemporary Art.
