Studio House PEC, Stew had been in touch with Michele L, the original local A-framer last year, and recently contacted Jean Baird with an offer.Stewart writes: "I would gladly offer to do an oil painting of the A-frame and have you auction it or sell it and take the $ to put into the renos. I have been a fan of Purdy since high school and would love to do what I can to help the community." Amazing offer. You can be sure Jean got in touch with us right away.
So, at this point the hope is that we can raffle (or offer at silent auction) Stew's painting during the PEC Authors' Festival this coming April. Stay tuned.
And if are in Toronto February 20 - 23, you can see Stew's work in person at the The Artist Project, Exhibition Place. Booth 402. If not, visit the gallery Facebook page, with its link to Stew's on-line store. And if you're in Wellington Ontario, visit the gallery at 169 Main Street. There's a new show featuring the paintings of Peter Rotter opening March 22.
