Welcoming Ray Fox
Northern Ontario based Anishinaabe visual artist, Ray Fox, works with a variety of themes in his practise such as memory, cultural and geographic identity, relationship to land, animals, and plant life. He started drawing as a child, raised within a family of many other Manitoulin Island-based Visual Artists. He graduated from the BealART program in London, Ontario. He then went on to study Drawing and Painting at OCAD University in Toronto, Ontario. Since moving back to Northern Ontario, he has been mainly producing work with graphite and charcoal drawings. Painting and printmaking is also part of his practise. He is on the board of directors for 180 Projects Gallery in Sault Ste. Marie where he has installed exhibitions for fellow artists, provided fundraising workshops, and contributed to the development of the gallery operations. He is very happy to be back home on Manitoulin Island and to have the opportunity to work with Debajehmujig as the Visual Artist in Residence.
