The Collection of Dr. Francis Sparshott, 1979


Rankin Inlet / Kangirlliniq, Winnipeg Art Gallery, 1981, exh. cat., page 33-34


Some of the most innovative and imaginative work was created by Pie Kukshout during the original Rankin Inlet ceramics program. This work was acquired from the Innuit Gallery, exhibition, Rankin Inlet Ceramics, 1964-1972: A Fleeting Phenomenon which Av Isaacs held in 1979 at the Toronto Gallery. The critically successful ceramics program came to an end for various reasons but mainly due to lack of government funding and support.
