"Leading Vancouver Artists"

Vancouver Art Gallery April 10, 1946

In 1944 the Labour Arts Guild held the First Annual B.C. At Work exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery. There were 153 artworks exhibited in the show. In 1945, there were 117 exhibitors and 204 entries in the Second Annual B.C. At Work exhibition.

The following year the Guild asked the Art Gallery for a list of artists who could be invited to participate in the Third Annual B.C. At Work Exhibition. The Gallery provided the Guild with the following list titled "Leading Vancouver Artists". The third exhibition was apparently not held.
