The Soper House Gallery is the place to see and purchase local arts and crafts, including carvings, jewelry, sealskin clothing, beadwork, and other locally made products such as wild berry jellies and traditional knives such as the uluit. The gallery is housed in an old wooden home built by Dewey Soper, a biologist and artist who explored the region. Some of his work still hangs in the gallery today, one of the only places his work can be seen as most of it was donated to the Arctic Institute at the University of Calgary. After the Soper family left the home, the structure was used as a nursing station. Today, the gallery is run by the Quliruakut Arts and Craft Society, and it is devoted to displaying and representing the work of local artists and craftspeople. Before the creation of the gallery, local artists had limited ways of displaying and selling their work. The gallery has offered them an opportunity to have a permanent home for their art that is seen by an international audience.
The gallery is open most Saturdays throughout the year. In addition, visitors to Kimmirut can make appointments to view the gallery at other times by contacting the Community Economic Development Officer at 867-939-2247. Both Visa and Mastercard are accepted and work can be shipped upon request.
