        It is with deep personal regret that we inform you of
       the passing of the artist and educator David Askevold.

       David died peacefully, in a Halifax hospital, on
       Wednesday January 23, 2008.

       One of Canada's most influential artists and an important
       figure in many international art movements of the last 40
       years, Askevold's work as an arts educator has also had
       great importance on an international level. David was a
       long-time colleague and contributor to Art Metropole, and
       one of our first Artist Life Members. He will be greatly

       The funeral will be family only. A memorial and
       exhibition will be organized for later in the year.

       Personal sympathies may be forwarded to David's wife and
