Garry Neill Kennedy is an artist, art educator, and a former art college president. He studied at the Ontario College of Art and then earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Buffalo. Kennedy completed his Master of Fine Arts at Ohio University in 1965. While maintaining his own practice as an artist, he led the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design (NSCAD) into its position as an internationally recognized centre. While including a wide range of materials in his work, Kennedy is best known for his paintings, which is unusual for an artist who is known as a conceptualist. Kennedy chooses the materials, lays out a set of rules by which the painting will be executed, and then gives himself over to the process by following his rules to the completion of the work. Garry Neill Kennedy continues to live and work in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Throughout his residency at Malaspina, he has produced four editions in collaboration with Matt Parisien, Quid Pro Quo, Pattison, Uh-Huh, and God!.
