La Guilde's Prints

This print collection was created to celebrate the 110th anniversary of La Guilde. For this fundraising campaign, La Guilde called upon artists Ningeokuluk Teevee, John Brent Bennett and Michel Dupont to each create an unreleased prints. These three established artists were each able to stand out in their respective disciplines and raise contemporary creation standards.

The purchase of a work from this collection presents an opportunity to support the development of a La Guilde, a non-profit organization, which aims to promote the Canadian artistic community. When purchasing a print, you will receive a $800 donation receipt for income tax purposes
