David Blackwood

Blackwood's depictions of the life, the landscape, and the people of Newfoundland have produced, over the past four decades, a body of work which holds a special place in the Canadian imagination. His strangely beautiful images have come to represent to many of us the essence of Newfoundland's landscape and traditional culture. Part personal biography, part cultural document, part mythic narrative, his work forms an ongoing chronicle of the distinctive stories, both epic and personal, which have shaped his life and the life of his native province. He is widely regarded as Canada's most accomplished printmaker.

The 'Black Ice' Exhibition organized and presented at the AGO in 2011, is travelling to Newfoundland in 2012 and Victoria in 2013. 'Black Ice' the catalogue published by the AGO, is now available at the gallery.

David Blackwood 'Revelation' - October 5 to November 2, 2013. Opening Reception with Mr. Blackwood Wednesday October 9, 5 to 8 pm.
