Ever see a bunch of free stuff at the end of a driveway and continue driving? Next time stop, you might find an original by Goyce Kakegamic

Goyce Kakegamic was born in Sandy Lake, Ontario in 1948. He began painting as a teenager under the guidance of his Ojibwa brother-in-law, Norval Morrisseau, and Cree artist, Carl Ray, after Morrisseau's successful Toronto shows.
In the fall of 1973, after learning printmaking techniques at Open Studio in Toronto, Goyce and his brothers Joshim and Henry Kakegamic opened the Triple K Co-operative, a silk screening operation in Red Lake. Their intention was to represent themselves (as well as other native artists like Barry and Paddy Peters, Saul Williams and Norval Morrisseau) on their own terms, rather than being dependent upon the needs and expectations of non-native publishers.
Shortly after opening for business Triple K decided to only produce limited edition silk screen prints from drawings not only designed specifically by the artist for the silk screening process but that involved the artist in the actual printing process.
The production of the high quality prints made the new "woodland" imagery affordable and available to prospective buyers across the country.
Goyce was represented in the England/Germany tour of woodland and Indian art in 1970. He and his brother Josh had a major place show at Toronto's Aggregation Gallery in 1974. Since then his work has been exhibited regularly and is represented in the McMichael Collection and the Mohawk Institute in Brantford.
Presently Goyce Kakegamic and his wife Lucy live in Thunder Bay where he works as Education Director for Keewaytinook Okimakanak (the Northern Chiefs) based out of Balmerton Ontario.
He continues to paint and is represented by several Canadian galleries.
