The Yukon Arts Centre Public Art Gallery is pleased to present a retrospective exhibition of local artist Jim Robb from May 22 - August 23, 2014. 

Jim Robb is known for his iconic illustrations of Yukon life presented in a variety of media, from his early drawings of Whitehorse, to rare original pastel drawings on moose hide.  These images are popular throughout the territory, and can often be seen in the homes and businesses of Yukoners.

Curator Jessica Vellenga has been working closely with Mr. Robb to plan this retrospective, and now they are seeking help from the public.  The gallery is looking for original Jim Robb artworks, especially early (1960-1980s), rare or unique pieces, that may be suitable to lend for display during this exhibition.   

Artwork will need to be available for loan from May 10 – August 30, 2014.  All loaned artwork will be safely and securely displayed and insured by the Yukon Arts Centre Public Art Gallery for the duration of the exhibit. 

If you have a Jim Robb original that you think would be suited for display, please contact the exhibition’s curator, Jessica Vellenga, at (867) 393-7109 or jessica.vellenga@yac.ca
