Timeless, Canadian, Classic.
They are three artists who share space in the National Gallery of Canada and a mutual passion for depicting the Canadian panorama. All three are good friends from the days they worked and studied together at the University of Regina.
Jack Cowin, David Thauberger and Russell Yuristy bring their unique yet symbiotic artistic visions to Ottawa’s Cube Gallery, 1285 Wellington St., Ottawa from April 1st to May 4th 2014.
Jack Cowin’s intricate hand-colored etchings and drawings hold immediate appeal whether it is a perfectly rendered trout or a loyal hunting dog. His work has been shown throughout the United States and Canada as well as Europe and Asia.
David Thauberger delves into defining the character of place, focusing on community in creating hyper-real, colourful portraits of prairie buildings, legion halls, quonset huts, false fronted shops and inner-city bungalows.
Russell Yuristy expands his permanent Cube Gallery oeuvre in this show with more of what collectors have come to love – his inspiring, interpretive, carefully observed paintings and prints of nature - trees, birds and animals.
“This is a show that allows gallery patrons to immerse themselves in the works of three Canadian greats of the fine art world,” says curator Don Monet. “Cowin, Thauberger and Yuristy are internationally respected and collected and it is a privilege to host them all together at Cube Gallery.” All three have work in the permanent collection of the National Gallery of Canada.
