|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
She was on a list titled "Leading Vancouver Artists," provided to the Labour Arts Guild on April 10, 1946 by the Vancouver Art Gallery to assist in the Guild's call for entries to the second annual B.C. At Work exhibition.
Bainbridge married and had children, but kept drawing and painting. She loved travelling to the Seton Portage and Shalalth area of B.C., even writing, illustrating, and publishing books about the area, including "Songs of Seton", 1975-76, a limited edition printing of 1,000 signed copies.
In 2000 she took part in Emily Carr Institute of Art + Design's 75th Anniversary festivities, giving a speech at the presentation banquet at the Hotel Vancouver, and having some of her original student work shown in the adjunct archival exhibition "Years Ahead of its Time". She was also awarded with an Emily award, the first year that the school presented the awards.
According to Unity, in a telephone conversation with the Editor in February 2003, the address of "Sherman P.O., Vancouver" given on the VAG's list of artists should have actually read "West Vancouver", where the Sherman Post Office was at the Sherman whistle-stop on the P.G.E. Railway, and just up-hill from the now long-gone Sherman Cannery, which apparently had quite a noticeable aroma.
She showed work in a number of the Vancouver Art Gallery annual B.C. Artists' exhibitions, as listed below, and in the final 1968 exhibition.
