Notice biographique
Printmaker and sculptor Alice Alashuak was considered one of the major leaders of the craft co-operative in Povungnituk. In 1968 she received a bursary offered by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO to attend the Third Assembly of the World Craft Council held in Lima Peru from August 31 to September 5 where 800 attendees from 56 different countries focused discussions on the relationship between traditional and contemporary craft artists. Although there is little information about Alashuak, her work is still being sold at various auctions houses. Alashuak's work is held at the Art Gallery of Guelph.
