Daniel Shimout: New Sculptures

February 15 – March 15, 2014

Feheley Fine Arts is proud to present our first exhibition of recent sculptures by emerging artist Daniel Shimout. The young Coral Harbour artist incorporates mythical figures, shaman transformations and scenes from every day life in the Arctic into his work. In many of his compositions, Shimout finds both realism and expressive fantasy through a combination of various media including bone, ivory, baleen and stone.

Artwork: SHAMAN FACE, 2013, stone, 9.5" x 4" x 5"

March 22 – April 26, 2014

This solo exhibition features an extraordinary series of drawings by this senior artist from Cape Dorset. Using everyday objects as subject matter, Jutai Toonoo continues his exploration of colour, texture and composition. An accomplished sculptor and graphic artist, Toonoo’s individual style is consistently at the forefront of contemporary art.

Papier 2014

April 24 – April 27, 2014

Feheley Fine Arts is returning for the third time to Papier, the Montreal-based contemporary art fair dedicated to works on paper. We will be showcasing drawings and prints by artists from both Nunavut and Nunavik, including Shuvinai Ashoona, Jutai Toonoo, Itee Pootoogook, Joe Talirunili, and Davidiuluk Alasua Amittu.


Napachie Pootoogook

May 3 – May 24, 2014

The daughter of renowned artist Pitseolak Ashoona and mother of the Sobey Art Award winner Annie Pootoogook, Napachie Pootoogook bridged the early and later generations of artists from Cape Dorset. In her later life she created drawings which moved away from the usual portrayal of traditional Inuit life favoured by first generation artists to reveal the darker side of traditional life. This powerful and provocative series, selected from Pootoogook’s characteristic monochrome drawings led the way for the younger generation to tackle social issues in their work.
