About the Juror: Ralph Heather
Ralph Heather is a visual artist living in Paris, Ontario, who is focused on original printmaking using traditional and contemporary techniques in hand-cut wood blocks, linoleum and etchings. He has a varied background in art from a lifetime in and around the visual arts, studying art at OCADU, Centre3, Scottsdale School of Art, is a graduate of Graphic Design at Sheridan College and continues to study and teach at The Dundas Valley School of Art. He is an award winning artist that exhibits regularly in solo and group art shows throughout Canada.
In his art, he enters into a visual discussion of our local environment and landscapes as he explores and reflects on his rural and urban surroundings. A strong sense of place is shared with the viewer, as he tells stories that reveal details and messages in places gone un-noticed and taken for granted. He finds life, hope, change, and beauty in our still present living landscapes and places that over time can slip away and disappear so easily.
