Ivan Eyre

R.C.A.
Winnipeg (Manitoba)
[Tullymet (Saskatchewan), 1935]


Throughout his education, Ivan Eyre studied under important artists including Ernest Lindner and Eli Bornstein. Eyre graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Manitoba in 1957 and spent the following year at the University of North Dakota. Returning to Canada, he began to teach at the University of Manitoba where he was appointed full Professor (Painting and Drawing) until his retirement in 1993.

Among his many honours, Eyre was elected a member of the Royal Canadian Academy in 1974, he received the Queen's Silver Jubilee medal in 1977, the University of Manitoba Alumni Jubilee award in 1982. He has held solo exhibitions from 1962 to the present and is represented in numerous public, private and corporate collections throughout Canada and the world.

In 1998 the Pavilion Museum was opened at Assiniboine Park in Winnipeg with the entire third floor dedicated as the Ivan Eyre Gallery. Ivan’s gift to the museum was enormous as he donated two hundred paintings, five thousand drawings and sixteen sculptures which are shown in exhibitions in his gallery on a rotating basis.

Ivan Eyre’s paintings and sculptures are represented exclusively by Loch Gallery in Toronto, Winnipeg and Calgary.


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.
