I’m new to this website creation and I have tried many ways to show acknowledgements of the artwork I use on this site. I feel it is important, so I am doing it here, as a blog post.
The Header is by Henri Beaulac. Born in Trois-Rivières, Mauricie, Québec in 1914, Beaulac was part of the rising of linoleum print art. These are from his series called Métis and are, in order, le gigueur, la courtepointe, et l’accordéon. I have only been able to find l’accordéon and I am actively looking to find the others to add to my collection.
My profile picture is scanned from an original piece by Alexander Angnaluak, a young and very talented student at First Nations University of Canada in Saskatchewan. I fell in love with this piece of art and it hangs in my living room. The sash was added using a widget that was offered by – I think – the Gabriel Dumont Institute.
PLEASE ENCOURAGE INDIGENOUS ARTISTS.
