Eyre

"Canada’s a nation of regions – a fact that includes its various art scenes. A painter who may be a big deal in, say, Toronto has negligible traction in Edmonton, and vice versa. Occasionally, though, a so-called regionalist achieves a sort of true patriot love across our vast home and native land.

David Thauberger is one such artist. Sixty-six in June, the Saskatchewan-born, Regina-based painter, ceramicist and printmaker has been wowing fans for 30-plus years with his clear, colourful, precise, folk-meets-pop depictions of Prairie farmhouses, dance halls, curling rinks and gas stations.

Loch Gallery is delighted to announce the launch of the 40-year retrospective exhibition of nationally-recognized Regina artist, DAVID THAUBERGER. Co-organized by the Mendel Art Gallery and the MacKenzie Art Gallery, the show explores how the idea of place has shaped Thauberger's work.

"Time Enough" by W. David Ward

Canadian artist and author W. David Ward brings to the reader his fond memories of the Isle of Man in his first book, Time Enough. This truly unique novel – a collection of tales, traditional and contemporary – enlightens the reader with regard to the relaxed and friendly nature of the Island. In the Isle of Man, old beliefs and contemporary ideas coexist. When the doors to the old world are left open however, we never quite know who will drop by, and we shouldn't be surprised when events in everyday life reflect those recorded in local lore. Our own journey, like that of John-y-Chiarn, may occasionally take us along rough and unexpected paths, but we might also discover some unlikely characters have helped us on our way.
