"Grace Judge shows some clever black and white work - design for book illustrations -
in which a good firm line, deft execution, is united to a pretty inventive fancy."
From "The Studio Club Autumn Exhibition", by Felix Penne,
B.C. Saturday Sunset, October 30 1909
"Grace Judge, B.C.S.F.A., has not only original faculty and a style of her
own, but she possesses an imagination that busies itself in dainty and refined
avenues of thought. In her quaint devices which have for their "motif" the dress and
customs of bygone days, she displays an insight and technique that are both admirable
From "Art in British Columbia", by
Opportunities Magazine, 1910
"In No. 19 "Vine Maples", Miss Grace Judge shows that she has sat at the feet of the
Pre-Raphaelites and her rendering is scholarly and able. This picture shows considerable
study and a successful attack of difficulties, it is highly decorative and the distant
trees are well put in. The same commendations apply to her picture entitled "The Narrows",
which by its admirably decorative design is lifted above locality."
From "With The B.C. Artists", by "A Visitor"
Vancouver Daily Province, September 27, 1916
"The big trees and "Autumn" of Miss Grace Judge are good examples of this

Vancouver Daily Province, April 28 1928
Article on Grace Judge and "another woman"
Vancouver Province, April 7, 1929 p.5 (magazine section)
"Grace Judge shows three examples of clever penwork

study of the fashions of a bygone day."

Vancouver Daily Province, November 13 1930
