Marjorie Agluvak

Baker Lake
 

Born February 26, 1941, Marjorie has spent her long life excelling at the art of tapestry. She is one of the approximately fifty women in the 1970’s who began hand-sewing felt applique designs on wool duffel. The outstanding talent and beautifully playful images displayed in these women’s tapestries eventually allowed them to forge a living from their art. This opportunity was made possible by the Sanavik Co-operative in 1971.

Marjorie stands out amongst her peers for her particularly intricate stitching and use of colour. She prefers to depict humans and birds in her pieces although all animals have, at one time or another, made an appearance on her tapestries. Marjorie has had pieces in galleries and museums across Canada and Europe. Between she and her acclaimed husband, carver Matthew Aqigaaq, Baker Lake art has touched most of the northern hemisphere.
