Mary Sutherland was a member of P.A.S.O.V.A.S., the Pioneer Art Students of Vancouver Art School, an artist's group formed in 1930 from the students who entered the Vancouver School of Decorative and Applied Arts in its first year and a half of classes in 1925 and 1926.

Sutherland started classes at the VSDAA in 1925, while living at 1901 Barclay Street in the West End of Vancouver. She did not receive a diploma from the art school.

She wrote a short untitled poem for the first issue of The Paint Box, Spring 1926, the VSDAA's school annual:

      Something for the Magazine -
      What shall it be?
      Shall it be a story
      Or some poetree?
      It can not be a story,
      For I do not pretend
      To ever find a title
      Or to know just how to end;
      But when it comes to poetry,
      That's the end of me.
      Something for the Magazine -
      What shall it be?


She later exhibited in the PASOVAS group exhibition at the B.C. Art League gallery in 1930.
