Background

Born in Regina, Saskatchewan in 1930, Richard Reid now lives in Christina Lake, British Columbia, 300 miles east of Vancouver. Richard received his BFA at the University of Manitoba in 1955.  He lived and worked in Mexico for several months, and then for five years in Europe.  He returned to Canada in 1964.  From 1965 to 1970, he painted and taught part time with the Vancouver School Board in the Adult Education Program.  From 1970 to 1979, 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 ECCAD’s Outreach Program.  His work has been exhibited widely, nationally and internationally in over 80 solo and group exhibitions.       See biography for more details
