Abstract (English)

"From Wigwas to Canvas : Generations of Woodland Art celebrates a significant Canadian art movement. Woodland art grew out of a union of traditional and contemporary expressions at the hands of Anishnabe (Ojibway) and Cree artists in northwestern Ontario. Sometimes referred to as the x-ray style, legend painting, or pictographic style, Woodland art resists such confining labels and instead engages viewers with its contemporary artistic expression. Mythological and secular images combine with a rich colour palette to convey narration, and themes of resistance, emancipation, and prophecy." -- p. [2].
