Meet Rosalind: a former government director who became a full-time artist and entrepreneur in her fifties. She is the Owner of the beloved Down to Earth Gallery, which carries pieces from over 140 artists located across the territories. It's situated in Yellowknife's iconic Old Town and it's a hub for events, annual shows and creative encounters. For Ros, the real magic of her business comes from the 'Down to Earth family' who makes it possible for Northern artists and locals to come together and build community.
At the end of this episode, you'll also meet Tłı̨chǫ artist Violet Martin who sells at the Gallery and has deep respect for Rosalind's big heart.
