Winnipeg sculptor Ivan Eyre donates work to McMichael Canadian Art Collection

Winnipeg artist Ivan Eyre will donate nine sculptures to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection in Kleinberg, Ont., to stand in the gallery’s planned sculpture garden.

Eyre plans to create the large bronze sculptures for the grounds of the McMichael by spring 2011.

Both a painter and a sculptor, he has an entire floor dedicated to his work at the Pavilion Museum in Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg.

Born in Tullymet, Sask., in 1935, Eyre studied in Winnipeg and in North Dakota and taught at the University of Manitoba until his retirement in 1993. Eyre has had numerous solo shows since 1962 and his work is collected throughout Canada.
