Saskatchewan NAC Auction House Biography and Notes
Agnes Nanogak was an Inuit artist from Holman, Northwest Territories.Her father encouraged her to draw from an early age, and she was a part of the first generation of artists to provide drawings for Holman's printmaking program, which started in the 1960s. By the end of her career she had contributed approximately one hundred forty images to a total of twenty annual print collections. Her artwork is described as fluid, bold in colour, and having "nervous energy'. Her work centred on themes of childhood, drum songs, and Inuit life. In 1985 Nanogak received an honorary degree from Mount St. Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She was the first Inuit artist to receive an honorary degree from a university. Agnes Nanogak's artwork can be found in the collections many institutions across Canada and the United States.
