Miss Nora Raine Southwell

(1899 - June 10 1981?)

B.C. Society of Fine Arts (Member 1921 - 1922)
British Columbia Artist (B.C.A., 1921)
Vancouver Sketch Club


Miss Nora Raine Southwell was a member of the Vancouver Sketch Club, and contributed to a loan exhibition of members at the Vancouver Exhibition in 1920.

She exhibited her work with the Island Arts and Crafts Society from 1918 to 1921, and with the B.C. Society of Fine Arts in September 1921 and September 1922.

A portrait of Miss Southwell by Margaret Wake was exhibited in the 1912 Annual Exhibition of the B.C. Society of Fine Arts.

B.C. Vital Statistics on-line provides the information that Bide Nora R. Southwell died on June 10 1981 at age 82, at an unknown location. This is presumably Nora Raine Southwell, although not a positive identification.

"In the Loan Exhibit members represented were ... Miss Nora R. Southwell."

      Western Woman's Weekly, September 18, 1920

"There is something of Gainsborough and something of Lawrence in "Lloyd, Son of F.R. Begg," by Miss Nora Raine Southwell. There is beauty and softness and a fine expression of the dreamy thoughtfulness and wonderful seriousness of childhood that places it among the finer and more considered works of the exhibition."
