|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
A portrait of Southwell by John Ford Clymer was exhibited in the 1929 B.C. Society of Fine Arts 21st annual exhibition. An article in the Vancouver Province noted that Southwell and Clymer had a studio together in the Empire Block, before Clymer moved east.
Southwell also exhibited with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in their May 1923 exhibition. Much later he showed work in the 1945 B.C. Artists exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery.
He died in Garden Bay in 1961 at the age of 95, according to B.C. Vital Statistics, although McMann gives 1958 in Biographical Index of Artists in Canada. This was possibly taken from erroneous information in a list of members of the Island Arts and Crafts Society on file at the Vancouver Art Gallery Library, which gives the same incorrect date.
