  1. Clarification please. Is Westerkirk not one and the same as the Elmwood Spa who hosted a show in 2010 with many of the '70s Style' alleged fakes, and with the so called 'Family Foundation' members, and associates, in attendance who are allegedly linked to fakes. Has Westerkirk come clean? The Elmwood still has pictures of this previous show on their website. Could this situation get any more bizarre? I doubt this will get posted.

  4. Norval Morrisseau's paintings continue to challenge viewers to look beyond themselves and their immediate surroundings into the realm of spiritual or astral worlds. And yes, 2012 Retrospective promises to be KRG's most impressive Morrisseau show to date !!

  5. Thanks for the clarification. I hope the Chiefs who saw the show know what's going on with regard to the fakes and can bring some influence to the table. Elmwood/Westerkirk should fix their website with regard to the 2010 show.
