David Blackwood, one of Canada’s leading printmakers and most popular artists, was born in 1941 in the outport town of Wesleyville to a family with a long seafaring history. He has been telling stories about Newfoundland in the form of epic visual narratives for 30 years. He will be joined in conversation by fellow Newfoundlander, writer, broadcaster and teacher Rex Murphy. Murphy is a regular contributor to CBC’s The National, writes a weekly column for The National Post and is the author of the book, Points of View, a collection of his columns and commentaries.
