Founded in 2006 by Jim Clark, Look North is committed to promoting Inuit and Arctic culture through its gallery in New York City. Jim has traveled and worked in Arctic communities for 15 years as First-Mate aboard the King Crab vessels Arctic Sea and North Sea. This experience, coupled with Jim's career in the family art business (the Vermont-based Look North), cultivated a love and understanding of Inuit culture and a passion for its great works of art. The collection of artwork found at the gallery is a reflection of this longtime passion.
Located at the center of a burgeoning arts scene in Red Hook, Brooklyn, Look North offers an unforgettable gallery experience. Situated in a newly renovated Civil War-era building that was once a former shipping warehouse, the gallery occupies a picturesque waterfront spot facing New York Harbor. The building, with its sweeping views of the water, the city and the Statue of Liberty is also home to artist studios, furniture design firms, and many other arts-related companies.
Look North's collection can be viewed by appointment and through scheduled exhibits and openings at the gallery. In addition Look North exhibits work in arts-related venues throughout New York City.
Look North guarantees that all artwork is authentic and offers a 30 day return policy as long as the work is returned to us without damage.
A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of our bear sculptures is donated to The Arctic Exploration Fund in order to research the effects of climate change in the Arctic.
