Jun 16-Aug 12 Keno­juak Ashe­vak shot to fame when Canada Post put The En­chanted Owl, a print of a black and red plumed noc­tur­nal bird, on a postage stamp in 1970. Other an­i­mal prints by the magic marker-wield­ing “grand­mother of Inuit art” are ex­hib­ited along­side work by her nephew, Tim Pit­si­u­lak. The en­chant­ing menagerie in­cludes Pit­si­u­lak’s Swim­ming Bear, a po­lar bear whose white limbs shine through a pool of In­dia ink, and Ashe­vak’s Boun­ti­ful Bird, a fowl with a fan of Me­dusa-like heads. $19.50, ART GALLERY OF ON­TARIO, 317 DUN­DAS ST W AGO.CA
