Two Exhibitions At Art Gallery

     Exhibitions of C.J. Turpin's water colors and work of the Camera Art Club opened Tuesday at the Art Gallery.
     The club, carrying out its idea of a unified show presenting pictures of one type only, has for the present exhibition taken as the subject study "Table Top" pictures. They are most clever and original, and in some it is difficult to realize the settings are artificial, with tiny models for figures. Forbes Helem, president of the club; Anna Abrahamson, Lillian Dow Davidson, V.J. Eby, and W.T. Thorne, DSC, the five exhibitors have quite apparently expended much time and thought to obtain the results.
     Soft shades of blues, greens dawns (?) predominate in the water colors of C.J. Turpin, Victoria, which form a small but pleasing exhibition. Mr. Turpin usually has at least one picture hanging in the B.C. Artists' annual exhibition, and his work is well known to most Vancouver art lovers.
