The Artist: Kenneth Campbell Lochhead, painter (born in Ottawa, 22 May 1926; died there 15 July 2006). He attended the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, 1945-49, and in 1950 was appointed director of the School of Art, Regina. He was one of the Regina Five and was instrumental in the establishment of the Emma Lake Artists' Workshops. His non-referential works of the 1960s reflected the New York aesthetic imparted via workshop leaders, such as American artists Barnett Newman and Kenneth Noland, and he was included in Clement Greenberg's 1964 "Post-Painterly Abstraction" exhibition.
Lochhead taught at the University of Manitoba 1964-73, York University 1973-74 and University of Ottawa from 1975 to 1989. In the 1970s he reintroduced recognizable subject matter into paintings that nevertheless remained largely intuitive, colourist exercises. Lochhead's contribution as an artist and educator was affirmed by several notable commissions and awards, including the Order of Canada in 1971 and a Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts in 2006. Major survey exhibition of his paintings were organized by the Art Gallery of Windsor in 1977 and the MacKenzie Gallery in 2005. (The Canadian Encyclopedia)
