Comer and the Hudson Bay Inuit, Symposium and Reception at the Canadian Embassy (Event May 3)

14 Apr 2018 11:50 AM | WAPA Communications (Administrator)
The Embassy of Canada will be hosting a symposium and art gallery opening about the Arctic explorations of Captain George Comer and his relations with the Inuit of Hudson Bay on May 3, 2018. Comer was born in Canada but moved to the U.S. at an early age. He explored the Arctic from 1875-1919. The exhibition drawn from material collected by Comer, captures a moment in time. Comer’s body of work provides an intimate and sensitive portrait of people whose way of life was changing. His work also reveals his appreciation for the ingenuity  and skills of his Inuit companions. Inuit people supported Comer’s by willingly sharing their knowledge and helping him to survive.
