“Mr. Squires, a painter, sculptor, lithographer and stained glass artist, was living in a lighthouse in Ferryland with his wife, Gail, and two daughters. He was part of a group of artists known as “The Gang Down the Southern Shore,” which included Frank Lapointe, Stewart Montgomerie, Don Wright and Heidi Oberheide.

Sandra Gwyn called the shaggy and intense Mr. Squires “the kind of character who, even if he didn’t live on the top of a cliff in an abandoned lighthouse with casements that really do look out on perilous seas and faery lands forlorn, is proof that there are still artists around who look and act as artists should.”
—Joan Sullivan, The Globe & Mail

Gerald Squires, an art-career retrospective of the Newfoundland artist Gerald Squires, who died in October 2015, examines lesser-known aspects of this beloved artist's creative journey. The book is released during the opening of a Squires retrospective at The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery in St John's. Featuring full colour reproductions of some of Squires' most renowned works as well as lesser-known illustrations of exemplary works, plus a complete chronology of his career, including a selected list of solo and group exhibitions, the book is augmented with a long essay by acclaimed Canadian literary critic Stan Dragland, and an appreciation by writer and poet Michael Crummey.
