Phyllis Kirkpatrick (Mrs. Allan Sutton)


Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts (Diploma 1929)
Vancouver School of Art Graduates' Association

Phyllis Kirkpatrick was a member of P.A.S.O.V.A.S., the Pioneer Art Students of Vancouver Art School, an artist's group formed in 1930 from the students who entered the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts in its first year and a half of classes in 1925 and 1926.

Kirkpatrick started classes at the VSDAA in 1925, while living at 1276 14th Avenue in Vancouver, and was in the art school's first graduating class in 1929. She later exhibited in the PASOVAS group exhibition at the B.C. Art League gallery in 1930.

The Spring 1936 edition of The Smock Pocket, the Vancouver School of Art Graduates' Association newsletter, noted that she "is instructing several pupils in Wood-engraving. She is hoping to come home next spring. Her new address is Calloa 2006, Buenos Aires."
