Artist Biography: Norman Hugh Dallin (Canadian, 1948) Nationally recognized Saskatchewan artist. “My style is rooted in a painter’s appreciation of the physicality of paint.” ~ Norm Dallin was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan in 1948. His art studies initially took him to Toronto, where he studied at the Ontario College of Art (1969) and at Three Schools of Art (1969-1970). Dallin later attended workshops at Emma Lake, Saskatchewan with Friedel Dzubas and John Elderfield (1979) and with Stanley Boxer and James Wolfe (1982).

Working as a carpenter and freelance artist, Dallin began exhibiting his paintings — in watercolour, acrylic, and oil — in the late 1960s. He has since shown his work across Canada in numerous solo and group exhibitions. Focused on the Saskatchewan landscape, Dallin understood his work’s connection to that of his contemporaries. Dallin’s work is represented in numerous collections including the Canada Council Art Bank (Ottawa), MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina), Mendel Art Gallery (Saskatoon), University of Saskatchewan, Art Gallery of Windsor, and the Alberta Art Foundation.
