PASOVAS ART SHOW
MANY INTERESTING EXHIBITS AT CLUB DISPLAY
Pioneer art students of the Vancouver Art School who
form the membership of the Pasovas Club, are finding
their feet in the world of art, and branching out along their own particular
lines, it is shown in their fourth annual exhibition now on view at the
Vancouver Art Gallery.
Four years ago when the Club held its first show, it was distinctly a student
affair, and the influence of the school was strongly marked. Today it is an
Though smaller than last year and not as varied in its contents, the
exhibition is an interesting one.
Vera O. Weatherbie, winner of the 1934
Beatrice Stone Medal, is showing "My-E-En," the
painting of the Chinese fisherman which won her the award; and a group
of small pictures in oils and water colors. The oils show more interest
in color than this young artist has displayed in the past.
Beatrice Lennie has two carvings, and several oils,
as well as a pencil portrait study.
Irene Hoffar Reid is representd with a number of
striking paintings in the oils section, including a rather unusual study
Among the larger paintings on display is Frank (sic) Amess'
"Woodland Temple," mural-like in style, and with unusually fine light-and-shadow
Margaret Williams, Maud
Shearman (sic), and Lilias Farley are well
represented in the show, the latter both in the fine art and handicrafts
sections. Apart from her original water colors, Miss
Shearman shows some of her animal book illustrations.
Exceptionally clever are Maisie Robertson's
animal sketches. In her line drawings of a colt she has caught all of its
awkwardness, in an amusing manner. Miss Robertson also shows several interesting
animal carvings in wood.
Jean Brown has only one contribution in the show, a
nursery screen painted in oils, which tells the story of Baby Bunting and
the daddy that went a hunting for rabbit skins.
Very striking are Margaret Lynne (sic) Allen's polo pictures
that have all the boldness of a poster.
In the handicraft section this year Frances Gatewood
has the field almost to herself. She is showing pottery and leather work, and has
included two original sample tiles.
The show will continue until November 18.
