Bill Lobchuk

Winnipeg, Manitoba
[Neepawa, Manitoba, 1942]

Bill received a Diploma of Art from the University of Manitoba in 1966. In 1968 he opened the Screen Shop at 50 Princess Street in Winnipeg and by the early 70s he had operated the Screen Shop, the Printmakers Gallery as well as the Sunnyside Sign Company. In 1973, with partner Len Anthony, he formed the Grand Western Canadian Screen Shop.

Bill Lobchuk was not only an artist but he was also a facilitator for other artists and their work. From 1972 to 1975 he was President of the Canadian Artists’ Representation, Manitoba and National Representative of Canadian Artists’ Representation from 1976 to 1978 and the National Director from 1978 to 1980. He was a member of the Manitoba Arts Council from 1974 to 1976, President of the Canadian National Committee of the International Association of Art, (1977 to 1980) and was on the Advisory Committee to the Gallery Oseredok in Winnipeg.

Bill’s work, and the work by many other artists produced out of the Grand Western Canadian Screen Shop, have received much notoriety in Canada, and have been exhibited nationally, as well as in Poland, Yugoslavia, Holland, Norway and Japan.
