Celebration of Life Skills in Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Territory


Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Territory and Killarney have heritage. It dates back to an old hockey game rivalry told by Killarney’s elders, that had both remote Georgian Bay communities traveling the ice by caravan for the annual festivities. I am honored my painting “Wikwemikong” was chosen to help the individuals attending the Life Skills Class of Wasse-Abin Wikwemikong High School said Pierre AJ Sabourin of  Killarney.

In celebration of the Life Skills Class of Wikwemikong, the Artist in Residence for Killarney Provincial Park has made available a special edition print series of the painting  The Sisters of St Joseph Convent ruins at“Wikwemikong” I’m especially proud, as the painting reveals  Wikwemikong and Killarney Heritage said Sabourin. The Sisters of St Joseph Convent ruins at Wikwemikong is perhaps the most incredible historic site you will ever experience in Canada. Healing is a war. The art of Reconciliation said Pierre AJ Sabourin

The limited edition series consists of ten digital prints on archival paper are titled, numbered and signed in pencil by the artist. The prints are matted and presented in one inch black frame with glass and measure 16 x 20. All proceeds from sales of the prints will benefit the Life Skills Class of Wasse-Abin Wikwemikong High School.

I would like to thank the Life Skills Team for spearheading the project in Wikwemikong Unceded Indian Territory. Also a warm thank you to my production team Photo Visions Digital Lab of Toronto, Ontario for the printing of the series and a sincere thank you to Midway Art and Frame of Mississauga, Ontario for the framing production and shipping said Sabourin.

The prints will be available in Killarney and Wikwemikong during the 2015 season.  The Life Skills Awareness Campaign will include the sale of fridge magnets, greeting cards and coffee Mugs of the painting “Wikwemikong”  said Sabourin.
