Indigenous & Ingenious
The beauty of aboriginal design minus the ugliness of cultural appropriation. Four Toronto-based indigenous artists - beadworker Naomi Smith, jeweller Barb Nahwegahbow, painter Mike Ormsby and photographer Jason Jenkins - showcase and sell their work at the Indigenous & Ingenious pop-up shop Friday (April 11) to April 18. The store is open at Communication Gallery (209 Harbord, communicationgallery.net.) from 11 am to 7 pm daily.
