Philip Mix – Artist Biography

Philip Mix was born in Edmonton Alberta in 1955. His formal art education came from the Alberta College of Art,Calgary and he received his Bachelor of Arts in painting in 1980. The following year he gave his first One Man show at the Muttart Gallery, Calgary and was represented by Virginia Christopher Gallery. In 1984 he attended summer session at the University of California, Santa Cruz. In 1986 he returned to Canada and started a conservation studio Fine Art Restoration in Victoria B.C. He became a member of the Pacific Conservation Group, and Canadian Conservation Associates.

In 1992 Philip took a hiatus to travel to France and painted for six months the environs of Languedoc, Narbonne. Then he set up studio for one year in Paphos ,Cyprus, and guest lectured at the Cyprus College of Art in Lemba. The collective paintings from this period were shown by Cadogan Gallery in London, England. He returned to Vancouver Island and eventually designed and built an in-home art studio in Chemainus B.C. Philip enjoys continued success with his developing style and is presently represented by several British Columbia and Alberta galleries.

With a strong interpretative design sense and evident admiration of Modern art, the works of Philip Mix display an elegant thoughtfulness, a balance of convention with a probing inventiveness.

Odjig is frequently referred to as the "Grandmother of Indigenous Art." She has been the recipient of many awards, honours and recognitions for her works, to name a few: The Order of Canada, the Governor General's Award, and eight Honorary Doctorates. Her works have been shown in the National Gallery of Canada, The McMichael Canadian Art Collection, the Canadian Museum of Civilization and the Art Gallery of Ontario.

She established the first native-run fine art print house in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1971. Known as 'Odjig Indian Prints,' this print house was so successful that it evolved into an Indigenous gallery space in 1974, called the New Warehouse Gallery, run by Odjig and her husband, Chester Beavon. She was also a founding member of the Indian Group of Seven. This artistic group's purpose was to promote Contemporary Indigenous art and artists.
