New exhibit in Canton
Monday, January 7, 2019 - 2:32 pm

The first exhibition of 2019 at St. Lawrence University’s Richard F. Brush Art Gallery will feature the works of Alootook Ipellie (1951–2007) in “Walking Both Sides of an Invisible Border.” The exhibition will take place from Jan. 16 to Feb. 23 and will feature a guest lecture by the curators on Feb. 4. Born at Nuvuqquq on Baffin Island and raised in Iqaluit, Ipellie moved to Ottawa in the late 1960s to attend high school. Over the next four decades, mostly spent in Ottawa, he worked as an artist, writer, cartoonist, editor, illustrator, and journalist. Curators Sandra Dyck and Christine Lalonde will deliver a lecture beginning at 7 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 4, in Griffiths Arts Center, room 123. A gallery reception will follow. Drawings by Ipellie and works by other Inuit artists are in St. Lawrence University’s permanent collection here.
