Born in Toronto, Ontario in 1941, J.C. Heywood’s career as artist and printmaker has spanned almost four decades. Heywood studied drawing, painting and printmaking at the Ontario College of Art, going on to teach fine art at institutions such as Queen’s University at Kingston, the University of Guelph, as well as at the Nova Scotia College of Art in Halifax. Heywood has received numerous grants from both Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council, enabling him to travel extensively through Europe, the Middle East, Japan, and to train apprentice printmakers such as Janet Cardiff. He has had several solo exhibitions in Canada and participated in international print shows in East Berlin, Yugoslavia, Taiwan, Norway, China, Poland and New Mexico. Heywood’s most recent solo exhibition: J.C. Heywood: A Life in Layers, was organized by the Burnaby Art Gallery and has been touring across Canada since 2008. Heywood currently lives and works in Montreal.
The collection of prints held within the Burnaby Art Gallery’s permanent collection has been designated as Canadian cultural property: works of special historical and cultural significance.
