Firstly, the first 'Fall Sale' purchase came through yesterday for both the 'Beaver Totem With Moss' and the 'Theotokos icon'. The timing was perfect, and after a successful meeting with the bank yesterday, a few more sales will greatly help the next phase in my studio work.
The bank gave me the go ahead to get my current condo on the market and begin the search in earnest for a new home on Vancouver Island. For the past few years, once my son joined me in North Vancouver because of his disability, we made due with the wee condo space, and it is fortunate that we get along so well. But even so, we have both reached the breaking point where we need better living space, he needs a place to rehearse his music and singing, and my studio is such where it limits what I can do.
It is still possible to purchase a home in one of the smaller communities on the Island which would greatly improve our living arrangement and provide far better studio and workshop space for myself and my son. But we need to move on that now! As his father, it is my best and only way in which I can support him in his disability, always in the hope that he will in due time find his own path.
So with two weeks left in the sale, I am hoping that some of you will take advantage of the great savings, including free shipping within Canada. It greatly supports this artist in the development of his work, both with the Totem series and in his iconography, and wherever the art leads to. The Island also has a wonderful art community and strong First Nations communities, both which this artist wants to be connected to and develop through that inspiration.
Andre Prevost, began his work in theatre in the late 70s after completing his studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts, and in his iconography in 1980, and having a large body of work in each. He has since been based in Western Canada; North Vancouver, Edmonton, Winnipeg, and now back on the West Coast.
