Patron Needed for Artist Seeking Vehicle
My name is Allyson Proulx, and I am a professional multimedia artist and writer based in London, Ontario. I have recently been awarded a two-week artist residency at Great Island Arts in Nova Scotia (June 22-July 5, 2019), and acceptance into the foundation year art program at the Yukon School of Visual Arts in Dawson City (Sept. 2019 - May 2020).
In order to get mobile quickly, and in an attempt to save money, I gave notice on my apartment here in London for June 1st. It is my intention to find a willing and able patron, with access to a safe and spacious vehicle, that I could use to get myself to both of these educational opportunities, by June 10, 2019.
I am willing to enter into a written agreement, and to exchange the work I create at both Great Island Arts, and Yukon SOVA as payment (along with a monetary sum), for use of such a vehicle. I can also provide a clean driver's abstract, acceptance letters, and a letter of recommendation.
I instruct any willing and able persons, who would like to support me in these endeavours, to please visit my website (leftysmudges.com), where you will find a wealth of information, including links to both organizations, my artist CV, pictures of current and past work, and media coverage I have received about some of the deeply connective work I do. You will also find I have options for the ways you can support me, and even participate.
I know this is a magical and generous ask, and I believe it is possible. I believe in the work I am doing, and I am ready to give as much as I receive. I know the people who will support me in these educational endeavours are out there, and I anticipate hearing from you with joy. Email: email@example.com
