Waddington's has been the "katilvik" of the Inuit art community for many years.
The gathering place where our community meets on a seasonal basis, facilitated by Waddington's Inuit art auctions.
To enhance this collaboration of people, knowledge and passion, our next logical step was to create a 'virtual' gathering place – an online "katilvik."
The fundamental purpose of Katilvik.com is to provide a source of information and a forum for communication for Inuit art and culture enthusiasts. A virtual meeting place where artists, collectors, dealers, researchers and students can find and exchange information, experiences and wisdom.
