October 6, 2014:
I received confirmation from the Silk Purse Gallery in West Vancouver that the 'Journeying With The Totems' exhibition has been selected and the dates are January 27 to February 22, 2015. I am very pleased to have succeeded in getting two back to back exhibitions so early in the new year, when galleries are making selections into 2016 and 2017. With this surprise in scheduling, I am having to advise the Winnipeg archdiocese that I can no longer continue with the discussions of a centenary icon which had a mid-January completion date. I need to take the remaining time to continue on the totem series to cover both exhibitions. My hope is that the centenary project may be able to postpone its timeline for a completion at the end of March. My sister put it perspective (as she knew I hate having to pull out of a project) by saying "That is the way it is when commissioning an artist in demand!" Such a nice problem to have. :-)
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.
