Clippings

"Every visitor will have some good words to say of the portraits of Mrs. Brydone-Jack, which show vigor and good sound workmanship. This woman's work in that difficult medium, pastel, is strong and constructive."
      From "Freshness and Vitality in Exhibition of Vancouver Sketch Club"
      Western Woman's Weekly, June 5 1920
