He has been the subject of two major retrospective exhibitions and the Nation Film Board's Academy-award nominated documentary film "Blackwood." His work may be found in virtually every major public gallery and corporate art collection in Canada, and in major private and public collections around the world. Blackwood has exhibited nationally and internationally with over 90 solo shows and scores of group exhibitions. A comprehensive and sumptuously illustrated retrospective, featuring over 70 prints spanning 40 years of the artist's work. Blackwood's art is steeped in the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador, and this volume reflects this close tie. Essays about Blackwood's world by novelist Michael Crummey, Dr. Martin Feely of the National University of Ireland in Galway, and Caoimhe Ni Shuilleabhain, who writes about the tradition of mumming, put the art in its cultural context
