Richard Reid was born in Regina, Saskatchewan in 1930.  His work concentrates on a synthesis of the human figure and landscape, and the subtle 'messages' contained.  He works primarily in acrylic, oils, watercolour and intaglio printmaking.
He received his BFA from the University of Manitoba in 1955.  He lived and worked in Mexico and then for several years in Europe, and returned to Canada in 1964.  From 1970-79, he was an Assistant Professor and Chairman of the BFA Programme at the University of British Columbia.  After leaving Vancouver, Richard became the founding Director of the Grand Forks Art Gallery (1984-2003) and a teacher in ECCAD's Outreach Program.
(Emily Carr College of Art & Design).  He has received three Canada Council awards, and was elected to the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts in 2004.  His work has been exhibited widely, nationally and internationally in over 80 solo and group exhibitions.
