Seeking Consignments for our Spring 2014 Inuit Art Auction

Happy new year. I hope that everyone had a great holiday and are looking forward to the spring season.
Waddington's will do its part to entice you where art is concerned, as we have many new auctions and events added to our traditional spring line-up. If you haven't' signed up for auction notifications for our various disciplines please do so here

The gallery for our first online Inuit art auction of 2014 is available for perusal. We have refined our selection process even further for these auctions raising the standard of works included. Online Inuit art auctions have been offered as part of Waddington's services for five years now and we will continue providing you with a year round supply of art by established names as well as interesting gems. If these auctions are not yet on your radar, you are missing out. Are you looking for an affordable sculpture by Barnabus? Have you always wanted to own an Anguhadluq print? Look no further because our January 20th-23rd online auction offers more than one option for your collection.

We already have several works entrusted to us for our highly anticipated live Inuit art auction scheduled for June 2nd. A group of which were collected in the late 1960's and early '70's in Rankin Inlet, Whale Cove and Great Whale River. Highlighting this collection is a 12" figural stone work by John Tiktak, as well as some fantastic smaller scale pieces by John Kavik such as a rare depiction of a polar bear standing on its hind legs. We are also excited to share with you a lovely large scale piece by lesser known artist Noah Aglak from Igloolik. His depiction of a seated woman in her amautiq is reminiscent of those early mother and child sculptures so typical of the Inukjuak region.

We invite you to be a part of our spring auction which is sure to be as well received as our fall offering was.
