1906 Henderson's directory


"Honor to Mr. H. Abbott, Mrs. A. Lothian Russell, Mrs. LeFevre, Mr. Mackintosh Gow and others who are responsible for this interesting little exhibition. May their ambitions be realized, may a permanent art gallery be a welcome addition to Vancouver's public institutions, may art scholarships and art lectures in the near future be the outcome of the earnest efforts of the little "bunch" of art workers and art lovers who are unobtrusiveley doing such welcome service for the community today."

"Mr. H. Abbott, the president, Mrs. A.M. Creery, Mrs. A. Lothian Russell, Mr. Mackintosh Gow, the director, and all concerned, are to be congratulated on again getting together an interesting and excellent collection. Each exhibition seems to mark improvement and progress."
      "The Studio Club Autumn Exhibition"
      B.C. Saturday Sunset, October 30 1909

"As an association for the encouragement of art, the Studio Club during the six years of its existence, has had a highly creditable history. Prominent among its workers have been Mrs. Russell, Mrs. Creery, and Mrs. Frame."
