Norval Morrisseau - Early Paper & Birch Bark

It gives me great pleasure to invite you to view our upcoming exhibition, Norval Morrisseau: Early Paper & Birch Bark, opening on Saturday, November 19 and continuing until December 17. This exhibition features 9 especially rare, early inks on birch bark and 14 rare, early pencil crayons on Gestetner paper, each circa 1966.

The majority of these exhibition works came to KRG from the heirs of two private collectors and patrons  Alfred Sawkins who lived in Kenora and Walter Ard who lived in Red Lake, both having acquired their artwork directly from Norval Morrisseau. Notable subject matter includes Bear Walker, Fox And Fish Theme, Lord Of The Water World, Mystical Thunderbird, c. 1960-64 and Ojibwa Midawiin Sacred Bear, c. 1959-62.

Please treat yourself to yet another outstanding exhibition by Norval Morrisseau — the iconic Canadian artist whose symbols and enduring artwork are synonymous with Canada's national identity.
