Renowned artist Germaine Arnaktauyok will launch her new autobiography, My Name Is Arnaktauyok, on Tuesday, April 28, in Yellowknife.
In My Name Is Arnaktauyok: The Life and Art of Germaine Arnaktauyok, the artist reflects on her traditional Inuit upbringing in a camp near Igloolik; her move to a residential school and her education in Southern art schools; and her return North, where she now lives in Yellowknife. She also shares insight on the inspiration behind many of her most iconic works, accompanied by over 100 full-colour reproductions of her drawings and etchings.
Please join Germaine and friends on April 28 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Visual Effects Gallery, YK Centre West, 4905 48th Street. Refreshments will be served. For more information, please contact Kelly Ward at [email protected]
