Talent and Passion

The Yukon is blessed with a huge number of talented and passionate women. It would take much more space than I have here to pay tribute to even just a handful of these inspiring ladies but I’m going to give it a shot. I’ve had to narrow the list down to five who have inspired …

At Colin Alexander’s Northern Icons exhibit in the Rah Rah Gallery, you would be forgiven if at first you thought you were looking at old, blown-up photographs.

Clay and Wonder

Sandra Grace Storey’s show, small changes, grows out of a love of clay and myth. All but one of the pieces mount on the wall. The clear white gallery walls give them the context to leap or stand with strong presence. Storey’s faces and animals have always had a quality of aliveness. I think her …

Sketching Life Stories

Each piece on the wall is someone’s story. It could be that of the artist, the model, or someone else entirely, but each detailed image is inspired by a human story, and it clearly shines through in the intricate stylings of the ballpoint pen pieces by Dawson artist Amanda King. Twenty pictures hang, evenly spaced, …
