Vancouver Sun December 1936


     "Buy a picture for Christmas" is the slogan of the Vancouver Art Gallery, whose Christmas exhibition and sale of work by B.C. artists is one of two shows that opened at the Gallery, Tuesday.
     The other is the exhibition of colored prints by the Vancouver trio, Paul Goranson, Orville Fisher and Ed Hughes.
     This year the Christmas show and sale is confined entirely to pictures in black and white.
     One that strikes visitors by its charm, Anne Chekaluk's "Storm Coming," showing a group of horses huddled together in the centre of a field, with dark clouds rolled up overhead.
     Arthur Checkley's "Dawn" and "Twilight," Paul Goranson's "Arbutus and Fir," Orville Fisher's "Waterfront Scene," Ed Hughes' "Trees on Savary Island," Robert H. Savery's "Spires - Holy Rosary" and Patricia Wilson's "Laughing Child" are just a few that would look well in a home.
     Especially interesting is the photography section in which the beauties of the Pacific Coast have been caught in many moods by British Columbia photographers.
     The Goranson-Fisher-Hughes' exhibition in the Reproduction Room has a special interest, because this year the young artists are showing colored lino-block prints in place of the black-and-whites that featured their earlier Gallery exhibitions.
