DORSET FINE ARTS
Dorset Fine Arts was established in Toronto in 1978 as the wholesale marketing division of the West Baffin Eskimo Co-operative. The Co-operative is in Cape Dorset, Nunavut and is unique among the Arctic Co-operatives for its focus on the arts and artists of the community. The Annual Graphics Collection from Cape Dorset has been released since 1959 and the Co-operative also represents many acclaimed sculptors and drawing artists. Dorset Fine Arts was established to develop and serve the market for Inuit fine art produced by the artist members of the Co-operative. Sales and exhibitions of prints, drawings and sculptures are made through the Dorset Fine Arts showroom in Toronto to galleries around the world.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Terry Ryan. Terry began at the co-op initially as a temporary arts advisor, and stayed in Cape Dorset for close to thirty years as the co-op’s general manager. In this time of grief, our thoughts are with Terry’s family and the many friends whose lives he touched.
