KENOJUAK ASHEVAK, C.C.. R.C.A. (1927-2013)
Cape Dorset artist Kenojuak Ashevak’s stonecut print Owl’s Bouquet (2007) will be replicated on a commemorative $10 banknote that was unveiled by the Bank of Canada in Ottawa for Canada 150. Kenojuak is the first Inuit artist to have work on a Canadian banknote. The Bank of Canada will begin circulating 40 million banknotes on June 1; they will be used alongside the existing $10 bills. Dorset Fine Arts has given a studio proof to the Bank of Canada’s permanent collection.
