"In a measure the Okanagan captures the show with splendid entries by
Louise M. Schwenk and Christina
Laird of Penticton and Vaughn Grayson of Summerland .... Vaughn Grayson,
already well known for her text books on art appreciation,

evanescent light. The subject is handled simply and broadly and with good effect."
From "B.C. Artists Evading War's Responsibility" by Mildred Valley Thornton
