Traditional Eskimo Inuit Art from the Canadian Arctic Meets Internet High Technology

Press Release From Free Spirit Gallery

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Montreal, Quebec, Canada - January 23, 2006 – Traditional Eskimo Inuit art from the isolated Canadian Arctic north is getting a boost in exposure worldwide with the help of today’s internet high technology. Previously, the only outlets to the outside world for Eskimo Inuit art were mainly the relatively small number of Canadian street retail galleries that specialize in this traditional fine art form. Visitors to Canada or the lucky few who made it up to the Arctic north were the only people who got exposed to authentic Eskimo Inuit art.

Now, with the help of Montreal-based Free Spirit Gallery, people around the world can see and learn about Eskimo Inuit art without leaving their homes. The Free Spirit Gallery website is loaded with beautiful color images of exquisite Eskimo Inuit art as well as numerous information resource articles.

Clint Leung, who created Free Spirit Gallery in 2004, says, “Our website is so informative about Inuit art that we’ve had many requests from students and publishers of art related ezines to use some of our information articles.”

One popular feature of the Free Spirit Gallery website is the section of eCards or electronic postcards featuring Eskimo Inuit art. Visitors to the website use these eCards for free to send special greetings or messages to friends online to help spread the word about Eskimo art. Free Spirit Gallery is the only website in the world that offers eCards with both Inuit art and Northwest Indian art.

Through the website, fans of Eskimo Inuit art can now continue to build their collections from the comforts of their own homes wherever they are. According to Leung, Free Spirit Gallery has shipped Eskimo Inuit art to happy customers all over the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France and Germany.

Because of the isolation of the Canadian Arctic north, Inuit artists have always had difficulties in getting their artwork out to the rest of the world. The modern technology of Free Spirit Gallery is now helping these artists gain much needed international exposure for their beautiful work.
