August 2020 Update
UPDATE - 2020 AUTUMN KINNGAIT (CAPE DORSET) COLLECTION PREVIEW COMING SOON …
Images should be available this month / early September - watch our website for online preview.
If this year is your first year acquiring autumn release limited edition prints, there is an annual process to follow:
1. Preview starts late August / early September - we set online availability for all new work to zero in stock (to prevent online sales only, until opening day);
2. during the preview you are invited to contact us to reserve your preferred work (we will advise you at time of reservation if it is likely or unlikely that we will have availability on opening day for the work you selected);
3. only at the opening (October 17, 2020 this year), will actual sales and shipping commence. Shipping is complimentary to most locations in Canada and the USA and upon request,
we will also send you a 2021 Dorset wall calendar to enjoy.
Please reserve early for best selection availability. We turn away customers every year we offer the collection (for some prints, due to popular demand) as early as opening day.
SPECIAL OFFER to AUGUST 15, 2020

June 2020 Update
All continues to be well here and we wish the same for you.
Thank you to the people on the front lines every day who make sure communities have what they need to get through the impact of Covid19. Our thoughts are also with those of you who may have lost loved ones or are recuperating now, or facing uncertainty in their professional and personal lives.
POST-COVID19 CALGARY: Calgary and Alberta are slowly returning to 'normal'. Courier transit time (large carriers) understandably has increased throughout the pandemic and remains to be the case so we recommend allowing extra time when ordering. Thank you for your patience.
2020 DORSET SPRING RELEASE: The spring release of Dorset Collection has been postponed. We'll post any availability updates here. It's possible the spring release will be available later this year or not at all.
2020 DORSET AUTUMN RELEASE: The 61st Annual Cape Dorset Collection, at this time, appears to be on track for mid-October sales start (early preview and reservations start in late August / early September). Timing, availability, subject to change. If you purchased from us in the past year we will send you an email and invitation to reserve / first selection from the Collection, ahead of the public, sometime during the first week of preview. If you wish to subscribe or be removed from our mailing list, please let us know. We send few emails during the year, value your privacy and don't share our mailing lists.
2021 DORSET CALENDAR: Will be available this summer (subject to change). If you purchased from us in the past year, up to two (2) calendars per year, per address, are reserved for you automatically and will be couriered to you on a complimentary basis, upon request or by invitation, prior to December 1, 2020.
Our Very Best. If we can be of assistance, please let us know.
