Self-taught artist Carl Ray was born on January 10, 1943 on the Sandy Lake First Nation reserve in northern Ontario. He apprenticed under Norval Morriseau (who had already achieved national and international acclaim) and worked on the mural for the Indians of Canada Pavilion of Expo '67 in Montreal. In the early 1970s Ray had the first solo exhibition of his black and sepia, Woodlands style paintings on paper and canvas at Aggregation Gallery in Toronto. By 1975, the 'Indian Group of Seven' had formed and Ray was enjoying acclaim and purchases by private collectors, as well as public institutions such as the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
