Harry Stanbridge was born in Quesnel, BC, and currently lives and works in Victoria. He studied painting with Don Jarvis and Takao Tanabe at the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr College of Art + Design) from 1963 to 1968. After moving to Victoria, he taught art at Spectrum High School from 1978 to 2003 while maintaining a regular studio practice and exhibiting regularly throughout British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.
Inspired by the West Coast style of Hard Edge painting, Stanbridge’s layered surfaces recall sublime emotions and have been described as “meditative devices or windows, through which the participating viewer can attain understanding” (Nicholas Tuele, former curator at AGGV). Stanbridge is an elected member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Art (RCA). His work hangs in prestigious Gallery collections in Canada and abroad, and he has exhibited in group and solo exhibitions nationally and internationally.
In 2007, Two Rivers Gallery hosted Communion, a two person exhibition by Harry Stanbridge and partner, Linda Stanbridge. Catalogue available.
Harry Stanbridge’s work is included in the Permanent Collection of Two Rivers Gallery.
