Members will remember the opening session at our 2010 meeting at Cranbrook, where Mr Power and John Houston recalled the early days of contemporary Inuit art. Mr. Power and his wife recently revisited Cape Dorset, and he has published an article on his experience and reminiscences: http://bridgemi.com/2014/04/
