Christopher Pratt (1935 - 2022)
Born in St. John's in 1935, Christopher Pratt studied at the Glasgow School of Art from 1957 to 1959 and earned a B.F.A from Mount Allison University in 1961. Following a brief tenure as an Art Specialist at Memorial University, he moved to Salmonier, St. Mary's Bay, and began working as a full-time artist. In a long and celebrated career his serigraph prints and paintings have been featured in dozens of solo and group exhibitions, capped by a major retrospective organized by the National Gallery of Canada in 2005, which travelled across the country. His work forms part of public and private collections nationwide.
