I'd just like to give you an update about my first gallery exhibition here in Toronto. The opening night on November 18th went extremely well. I want to thank all those who came out to see my art, especially my mother who flew in from the Turks and Caicos Islands. She's the person who got me interested in painting and has helped me develop through the years. I wouldn't have reached the level where I am now without her constant and loving support. And of course my husband Steve for helping and putting up with my crazy. I love you.
I also want to thank my friends and fans, some of whom came from far away. Several of my paintings sold for quite unexpected prices, which is an encouragement for me that I'm on the right track. The paintings are still available at the LAB Studio Design Gallery (416.363.5595) for two more weeks. After that I hope to have them available for everyone to see (perhaps buy) online. Part of the proceeds from any sale will be donated to FIFE House which provides secure and affordable supportive housing and support services for persons living with HIV/AIDS.
I've had my share of ups and downs and demons I've had to fight. So I can say this to anyone else battling issues. Don't give up or lose hope. You can turn your life around. You too can be Unbreakable.
Thank You Again!
Love, Brent Everett.
