Gallery Phillip
Celebrating 40 Years

Gallery Phillip has exhibited First Nations and Inuit art since 1976. The gallery features an extensive collection of Indigenous art which includes sculptures, graphics and drawings in a variety of styles and subjects. We carry Inuit prints from Cape Dorset, Baker Lake, Pangnirtung, Povungnituk, Holman Island and Kangiqsualujjuaq, and share an equal passion for original Inuit drawings.

Daphne OdjigDaphne Odjig, Canadian Indigenous Artist and Icon Dies at 97. Click here for more details.

Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, and eight Honorary Doctorates. Her works have been shown in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971. Known as 'Odjig Indian Prints,' this print house was so successful that it evolved into an Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
