J. C. (John Carl) Heywood has been making art for over 50 years, concentrating primarily on printmaking using screenprint, etching, lithography, vectographs and digital prints. This exhibition showcases his exuberant and varied approaches to working with colour, composition, form and texture, in both prints and paintings. In Living Colour provides an opportunity for discussion on the origins, relationships, and processes of Heywood's creations, was well as his multiple approaches to image-making. Admission to exhibit and all events are free, and all are welcome.
Born in Toronto, and spending a great deal of time in Galt, J. C. Heywood has an art career that spans 50 years. Since beginning at the Ontario College of Art in 1959, he has continuously made art. According to Heywood, "Creating images is the most wonderful of games...It is like swinging on a rope out into a river: a focus that engages me mentally, sensually, physically, spiritually...a meditation, a joy." His work has been shown in exhibitions around the world, and is included in numerous pubic collections. For more information about J. C.
