The Ephemeral Landscape
Richard Reid
May 30 - August 15, 2015
At art school, Richard Reid began his work primarily as a printmaker exploring the various qualities of intaglio printing, (etching, engraving, drypoint, aquatint, etc). With the prints, the essence of his work had clear ‘painterly’ attributes. After art school, he more and more frequently explored oil, acrylic and watercolour painting as the media that suited his sensual approach to the figure and landscape, and the transfiguration of one into the other.

Reid’s work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally in over 80 solo and group exhibitions, and is in public collections that include the: Edmonton Art Gallery, Edmonton, Alberta; Grand Forks Art Gallery, Grand Forks, BC; Leighton Foundation, Calgary, Alberta; Richmond Art Gallery, Vancouver, BC; Sarnia Art Gallery, Sarnia, Ontario; Sharecom Industries, Dewinton (Calgary), Alberta; University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Manitoba; University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC; University of Victoria – Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery – Coast Art Trust Collection; and numerous private collections.

Richard Reid has received awards from the Canada Council for the Arts, 1963, 1964, and 1967; the BC Arts Council – Honor Roll, 1999, Assembly of BC Arts Councils – Arts and Culture Arts Champion Award – 2005, and in 2004 he was inducted into the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts (RCA).

He received his BFA at the University of Manitoba in 1955. He lived and worked in Mexico and then for several years in Europe, returned to Canada in 1964. From 1970-79, he was with the Fine Arts Department at UBC, as Assistant Professor and Chairman of the BFA Program. After leaving Vancouver, Richard became the founding Director of the Grand Forks Art Gallery (1984-2003) and a teacher in Emily Carr University of Art & Design Outreach Program (1980-84).
