The Winter 2010–11 issue of Canadian Art hits newsstands across the country this week with a wealth of stories on art education—in particular focusing on some of the many prominent artists in Canada who teach.

Highlights of the issue include:

• Contributing editor Robin Laurence’s look at Vancouver painter Landon Mackenzie, who built her ambitious painting practice through ups and downs of both genre and gender politics

Lynne Bell’s feature on Hunkpapa Lakota artist Dana Claxton’s practice, which critiques and reinvents North American history both in the classroom and the gallery

Diana Sherlock’s visit with ACAD instructor and Governor General’s Award winner Rita McKeough, who says “you can’t separate your work and your life.”

R.M. Vaughan’s long-distance interview with Canadian artist Janet Bellotto, who has been teaching in Dubai at an art school for women after being hired via webcam

• Novelist Ann Ireland’s report on prominent Victoria artist Mowry Baden, who is widely regarded as a “teacher’s teacher”

Pete Smith’s look at the ever-provocative painter, critic and “Guelph Mafia” leader John Kissick

Plus all the top-quality reviews, previews and news that you expect from every issue of Canadian Art.


The fun continues online, where you can find:

Managing editor Bryne McLaughlin’s profile of globetrotting Dawson City artist Charles Stankievech, who helped start a new arctic art school

Gary Michael Dault’s tribute to the sculptural painting practice of Calgary’s Eric Cameron, including a bonus portfolio

Leah Sandals’ journey through a long-abandoned Toronto school briefly repurposed as a lively exhibition space by Heather Nicol and dozens of other teaching artists, including bonus audio and pictures

More images from the sharply perceptive oeuvre of Dana Claxton

Additional paintings from the lush, thoughtful studio practice of Landon Mackenzie

• And much more!

  • Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller: Black Birds

  • Grange Prize 2012: Hot Shots

    One of Canada’s largest cash-value art prizes—$65,000 in total with $50,000 going to the winner, $5,000 to three runners-up—announced its finalists this week. Take in their wide-ranging works in this slideshow.

  • Wanda Koop: Into the Woods
