|BRITISH COLUMBIA ARTISTS|
Turpin was one of the artists apparently rejected from the 13th Annual B.C. Artists exhibition in 1944, but did not show at the "Salon de Refuses" at the Galloway-Dorbil Gallery/Bookstore.
He exhibited in the 1945 British Columbia At Work exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. He was living on Vancouver Island at Sooke and later Victoria.
B.C. Vital Statistics on-line notes that Clifford Turpin died in Terrace on May 7 1974 at the age of 58, possibly the artist.
