PASOVAS CLUB

Annual Display on View at Art Gallery

     While not so large as customary the exhibition of the Pasovas Arts Club at the Vancouver Art Gallery, which had a private view Friday night, lacks little in variety.
     Oils, water colors, black and white, and other media are represented, but handicrafts show a definite decline in display on this occasion. All the familiar names are fortunately again on view, and the work indicates some change of technique, but no violent departure from established practice.
Margaret Williams, Irene Hoffar Reid, Maud Sherman, and others, attain that effect which contrasting colors afford, the last named in "Sea Gulls" and "Dragon Flies" offering something distinctive in treatment of familiar objects.
     The twin contributions each of E.J. Hughes, Paul Goranson, and Orville Fisher, in black and white, are exceptional. In the working of material into decorative effect there are buffalo book-ends by Maisie Robertson, and mahogany carving by Lilias Farley.
