George Goutiere

February 1899 - 1948

Canadian Institute of Associated Arts
Federation of Canadian Artists (Founding Member 1941)

George Goutiere was born in India in 1899. After a number of adventures in that sub-continent he came to Canada. He taught at the Canadian Institute of Associated Arts in Vancouver.

The 1938 Canadian Institute of Associated Arts Prospectus noted that Goutiere was an Instructor in Radio-Script, Article and Short-Story Writing, and "is a successful eastern short-story author and illustrator. He has had several radio-scripts produced over "CBR."

He had a two person exhibition in 1938 at the Vancouver Art Gallery with Margaret Carter, and a solo exhibition in 1947. An interesting autobiographical letter accompanied Goutiere's application for the 1947 exhibition, but did not appear in the small exhibition catalogue.

He also exhibited in B.C. Artist annuals in 1940, 1943, 1946, and 1947. He lived at Fisherman's Cove, West Vancouver in 1943, in 1946 he was living in Boundary Bay, and in 1947 in Vancouver.

"Mr. Goutiere, a recent arrival from Toronto, is a playwright, director and artist. Several of his drawings which satirize modern social problems, have been published in Eastern Canada and the United States. His exhibition will include drawings in line and colour depicting incidents in the lives of people in European countries now in upheaval."
