Preliminary results (with 140 of the 144 venues reporting) show about 38,000 studio visits during the three-day Crawl, up from 35,000 in 2016. And sales of art jumped a whopping 40 per cent with $368,000 in sales directly to artists – up from $260,000 in 2016 – and approximately $87,000 in commissions or workshops. Some of that money went to Prevost, who sold the “Boardroom” painting for $5,200 on the final day of the Crawl, along with a second painting, at her studio on Reed Rd. in Gibsons. Next year’s Art Crawl runs Oct. 19 – 21, 2018.  Donna
