Dorset Fine Arts was established
in 1978 as the marketing division of the West Baffin
Eskimo Cooperative. Located in Cape Dorset, Nunavut,
the cooperative is unique for its focus on the
development of the arts and artists in the community.
Among the many initiatives undertaken by Dorset Fine
Arts is the annual release of its print collection.
Each year, since 1959, the launch of this original
print compendium has been highly anticipated,
particularly the stonecut and lithographic works. The
cooperative proudly represents the many acclaimed
stone sculptors and graphic artists who are
responsible for the distinctive aesthetic created at
Cape Dorsetís Kinngait Studios, the oldest art print
shop in Canada. Sales and exhibitions of prints,
drawings, and sculptures are generated through the
Dorset Fine Arts offices in Toronto to galleries
