PASOVAS EXHIBIT

PIONEER ART STUDENTS' SHOW

     Pioneer art students of the Vancouver Art School, known as the Pasovas Club, are for the fifth consecutive year showing their work in exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
     The show opened with a preview Friday night, and will continue until March 4.
     Far fields have lured a number of the members and even with the addition of work by half a dozen local artists who do not belong to the club, the exhibition is considerably smaller than usual.
     This year's show presents some really fine work.
     Handicrafts are practically a minus quantity, but there is one new departure in the field of photography. Vito Cianci has brought this phase of art to the present exhibition.
     One section is given to Isabel Wintemute's original and clever costume designs. These are for the "Insect Ballet" and "King Hunger." Miss Wintemute won honorable mention recently for her costume designs at the Junior League Art Show to which artists of both United States and Canada contributed work. She is one of the non-members invited to contribute.
     Margaret Williams, Irene Hoffar Reid, Beatrice Lennie, Phyllis Kirkpatrick, Maud Sherman, Maisie Robertson, and Lillias (sic) Farley are all represented.
     In addition to Miss Wintemute, artists invited to join the club for the exhibition include:
     Paul Goransen (sic), E.J. Hughes, and Orville Fisher who make the black-and-white section a noteworthy one; P.W. (sic) Ustinow, and Helen Lougheed.
