Kenneth Campbell Lochhead

Kenneth Lochhead was an Ottawa-born artist who made himself at home on the prairies for twenty-three years. He developed a unique voice in painting and left an indelible mark on the face of Canadian art. Lochhead spent fourteen productive years in Regina beginning in 1950, when he became the director of the School of Art at the University of Saskatchewan’s Regina campus. In this position, Lochhead played an integral role in launching the Emma Lake Artist’s Workshops and cultivating their programming. In 1960, he founded the Regina Five, with fellow abstract painters Ted Godwin, Arthur McKay, Douglas Morton, and Ronald Bloore.
