Greetings,  Joel A. Prevost and Lyle Schultz here, we are excited to announce a new joint exhibition we are presenting in Nanaimo @ VIS Studios. 

Since meeting 16 years ago in Nanaimo, we have both moved around Canada, focusing on our art, and occasionally exhibiting together in Montreal. We decided its time to do a new show together, since we both live on the island again. The main theme of this show is short, sweet and simple, DOGS. We are having fun creating a plethora of strange, sometimes deranged and funny creatures, in both Clay sculptor and Mixed Media painting. We would like to see you at the show. All the info is attached below. Also, in case you are wondering how to make a similar show of your own, we created you a recipe list!

As well as painting, Lyle is also very active in Album design, clothing design, music, and writing. Lyle considers Art all one thing, the final goal being film.
