"A striking contrast to Miss Langford's three pictures is furnished by three adjacent ones
in the modern French style by Statira Frame, who uses almost
pure color with considerable artistic effect. These, which are Nos. 74, 75, and 81, are
evidently of local scenes. They show originality of treatment, but it would seem that the
painter should push her method a little further. They are, however, a decided relief
from the ordinary."
From "With The B.C. Artists" by "A Visitor"
Vancouver Province, September 27 1916
"Among the exhibitors were ... Mrs. William Frame ..."
From "Social Notes"
Vancouver Daily World, May 7 1917
"At their new quarters in the Victoria block, the Vancouver Sketch Club
had an interesting exhibition on Saturday afternoon. Among the exhibitors were ... Mrs. Will Frame ..."
"Many Visitors At Sketch Club"
Vancouver Daily World, December 3 1917
"Mrs. Frame, an individualist with a strong sense of color, who is never
anaemic, shows several daringly painted studies."
From "In the World of Art"
Western Woman's Weekly, June 5 1920
"For some time the meetings and exhibitions of the club were held at the
studio of Miss Wake, but about two years ago an independent
studio was secured at the present quarters, 342 Pender street west.
This location has become known for its art associations, the building having also
contained the studios of such well known artists as
Mr. Thos. W. Fripp,
Miss Margaret Wake,
Miss Isabel Weir, and
Mr. Norman Hawkins."
From "Sketch Club Is Well Organized" by I.B.
Vancouver Province, July 17 1920
"Two striking color schemes by Mrs. Stateira Frame in her
now well-recognized style of boldness are a tribute to her courage and determination
in an attempt to break away from the traditional handling of difficult color values.
It is unfortunate for Mr. W.P. Weston that the hanging
committee have been unable to find a better juxtaposition for his delicately colored
"Becalmed" and "Dinghy Race" than exactly between these violent but appealing canvases
of Mrs. Frame. Wile the brighter colors absolutely kill Mr. Weston's picture from a
color point of view, it is still possible to enjoy the life and dignity of their lines
From "B.C. Fine Arts Society Exhibition (First Notice)"
Vancouver Province, May 15 1923
"The freshness of colour in the two pictures of the impressionist school, by
Mrs. S. Frame, was the subject of complimentary comment."
Sketch Club Semi-Annual Art Exhibition
B.C. Ladies' Mirror, December 15 1923
"Mrs. Stateira Frame again contributes to our knowledge of
brilliant color schemes with her usual calisthenic pigmentation. In these excursions
into modernity, however, she still clings at times to the outworn fiction that the
existence of perspective should be acknowledged, even if it is not actually introduced
into the picture."
From "B.C. Society of Fine Arts - Annual Exhibition All This Week"
Vancouver Province, May 7 1924
"Mrs. Stateira Frame's paintings need no signature, and
as examples of painting they show a fine originality and a beautiful
arrangement of color. She has a decorative panel, a picture of a tug, and some
summer scenes which are brilliantly simple and effective."
From "Palette and Chisel Club" by Diogenes
Vancouver Province, November 6 1926
"Mrs. Statira Frame as the Society's pioneer in
modernism, is of course quite at home in the present exhibition, and the
examples of her art are as distinctive as usual."
From "B.C. Society of Fine Arts" by Bernard McEvoy
Vancouver Province, April 28 1928
"Miss Frame, a most dependable member of the society,
its leader in impressionism, who was commended in New York a long while ago,
shows three characteristic examples. To my ( ? ) "Parasols and Lanterns" is
much the ( ? ) work as to drawing and decorative effect."
From "B.C. Society of Fine Arts" by Diogenes
Vancouver Province, November 13 1930
"One Vancouver artist has had a signal honor paid to her. On February 5
a one-man show of the work of Statira Frame
opened in the Eaton Galleries in Montreal. Some twenty-eight landscapes and
subject pictures are included in this collection, which will be transferred to
the Eaton Galleries on (sic) Toronto when it closes in Montreal on February 17."
