Meet the collector: Saturday, March 26, 1pm to 3pm
Join us on the final Saturday afternoon of March to casually meet-and-greet regional collector Raj Mosur.
Since 1984, the Mosur family has honed a wealth of traditional and contemporary carvings from across Canada. Each work retells historical and cultural narratives through the use of mnemonic iconography and embedded codes. The Mosur Collection includes stone, copper, bone and porcelain works created by Anishinaabeg, Haida and Inuit artists.
Meet the Collector
