Pratt has lived and worked nearly all his life as an artist in the rural village of St. Catherines, at Salmonier on the Avalon Peninsula of Newfoundland.
From this vantage point he has created a remarkable body of paintings, drawings and prints that reflect his vision of the world around him, a press release from the art gallery said.
This collection of prints illustrates Pratt’s ability to depict landscapes as both beautifully simple and yet deeply compelling.
The Art Gallery of Sudbury, in partnership with Firefly Books, published “Christopher Pratt: Six Decades,” written by Tom Smart in 2013. The book is available in the art gallery's boutique and online at www.artsudbury.org.
The exhibit, organized in partnership with the Mira Godard Gallery in Toronto, celebrates the publication.
The Art Gallery of Sudbury, located at 251 John St., is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. For more information, visit www.artsudbury.org, or phone 705-675-4871.
