Eva Stubbs

R.C.A.
Winnipeg (Manitoba)
[Budapest (Hongrie), 1925]

Born into a Jewish-Hungarian family in 1925, Eva Stubbs immigrated to Canada with her parents and brother in 1944 and settled in Winnipeg. In her early twenties, while convalescing from tuberculosis, Stubbs made the decision to enroll in the Fine Art program at the University of Manitoba. Over ensuing decades she furthered her training at the Cranbrook Academy of Art in the United States, the Banff School of Fine Art, and the Tokoname Clay Workshop in Japan. Stubbs taught art classes while raising a family through the 1960s.

By the mid-1970s she turned exclusively to her own practice, and has exhibited in Winnipeg, Toronto, Montreal, and her native Budapest. She played a founding role in SITE Gallery, Winnipeg’s first artist-run commercial cooperative exhibition space, which existed between 1995 and 2005. Eva Stubbs was elected a member of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1995.

For the Love of Creation: The Life and Art of Eva Stubbs, a lavishly illustrated book authored by Faye Hellner, was published by the Winnipeg Art Gallery in 2010 to accompany a retrospective exhibition of her work.


Le projet d’artistes de Winnipeg du CACC a été réalisé grâce au soutien généreux de la Winnipeg Foundation, complémenté au niveau de la recherche par le Programme de subventions destinées au patrimoine de Culture, Patrimoine et Tourisme Manitoba.
