The 2024 Dorset Fine Arts Calendar highlights 12 outstanding prints from previous years from Kinngait (Cape Dorset).
About 1,200 miles north of Toronto, the hamlet of Kinngait, Nunavut, is home to a multi-generational community of Inuit graphic artists. Their cooperatively owned printmaking studios have been in continual operation since 1959, producing unique, captivating, and powerful images. Twelve of these remarkable prints adorn this calendar’s pages. Includes US, Canadian, and United Kingdom legal holidays. Published by Dorset Fine Arts.
Calendar size: 14 W x 12 H inches folded; opens to 14 W x 24 H inches when hanging.

Decades ago, Jan Sivertson traveled to far north Canada and Alaska and brought the work of Inuit sculptors and Cape Dorset printmakers back to her small Grand Marais, Minnesota gallery. Today, Sivertson Gallery is widely known for its extraordinary collection of prints, sculpture, jewelry, and dolls that tells the story of living off the land and sea sustainably and against all odds. A celebration has been held regularly in October at Sivertson Gallery, centered around the Dorset Fine Arts print collection. Our Sivertson "Inuit Premieres" have become widely anticipated customer favorites as we bring together artists from the far north and Grand Marais, hold artist demonstrations in our local studios, and engage our community from students to senior citizens.
