The Arctic Winter Games International Committee recognizes significant Host Society sponsors at each Games. In 2018, this recognition will take the form of a limited edition canvas print made from an original painting created by Yellowknife artist Emma Butler.
Artist Emma Butler was born and raised in Yellowknife. She began drawing at a very early age, but when she in grade 6 she was inspired by her older sister to take her drawing and art more seriously. That began a new adventure that has continued to deepen her understanding of the world around her both locally and when she traveled abroad. She has pursued art courses through school and with artists locally and beyond. Emma is excited to graduate in June 2018 from Sir John Franklin High School and is now exploring how to expand her art training.
