Sinclair Healy was a Crouch family friend and we had the good fortune to collect a number of pieces of his work. One of Clare’s designs is up for consideration for a Canadian Quarter for 2017, Canada’s 150th birthday.
A native of Moncton, New Brunswick, Sinclair Healy graduated from Mount Allison University (BFA) in 1949. He continued his studies (MFA – 1954) at Columbia University in New York and a Lord Beaverbrook Scholarship allowed him to pursue post graduate studies at Slade School, University of London, England in 1956-57. A gifted teacher, he has exhibited in both private and public galleries, most recently featured at the Richmond Art Gallery and the Burnaby Art Gallery in British Columbia. His work is in collections of The Beaverbrook Art Gallery in Fredericton, NB, the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, BC, Mount Allison University in Sackville, NB, the Mendel Collection in Saskatoon, Sask., and private collections in the United Kingdom, New Zealand, France, Spain and Sweden.
