(Jeers and hoots from the women's clubs). "Car- lottn,'' a portrait uy Marion Hoyd and "Reminiscences of the Old World,"'to .mention but two, are especially masculine in their treatment. "The. Garden Symphony,"' by Clara Fair-field Perry, ou the other hand is essentially feminine •the colors are lovely Imi ihe oil is somehow sentimental. Generally speaking, however, the paintings in the exhibit have been painted with a masculine strength and vigor, tempered with' a feminine sympathy, which makes the exhibit a success, . A painting which should.-appeal to Kansans is á landscape Jíist opposite the door as one enters the. Art room—"Rain Washed;" painted by Helen K. MeCarttiy'jf "Rain Washed' 1 might have Ijeori^painted any place in Kansas-'-where there are gentle little hills:., the brilliant Kansas slty -is..'there—and. Kansans need'never go to Italy for deep, blue skies—and floating about in- the blue, are. soft white clouds casting shadows oa the gently rounded hills below. Blue sky, white clouds, green hills —prosaic enough, a'tid yet Miss McCarthy has succeeded In transferring a spirit to her canvas that makes her attempt worth while and momorylul. "Earliest Spring," a small canvas by Gladys Branuigan is an interesting oil but misnamed. The green in too yellow for "earliest j.pring"-—it .is a fall green, rather than the blue green ot. early spring. .' The patterning- of the trees is- reminiscent a little of , Tryon. "Spring Plough- ing' 1 ' by Anna Brewster is another small canvas, the two Corsas—one. head back, body straining, the ni.lier doggedly bent to the pull of the plough shares— and the man adding interest lo u well painted picture. "The Poplars" is a small canvas beautifully conceived and executed. A picture that fascinates with its changing lights and tall build- Ings emoi-giug from deep green shadows is Alice llirsch's U'lu's- tleresqne, "Where Broadway Begins." One looks across the harboi: jiafft two small vessels to the tall buildings beyond, their giant height! s-hadcuved uguioKt. the sky. The lights suom to multiply as on<) looks, and what :it. first glance seemed only a blur uf green becomes n beautiful night picture brightened with 11 myriad of lights. Two other night picturos are "Moonlight, in California" and ".Inly livening."

Coppedgn, formerly of Topeka, in represented in the «xlilbit by "Tim Lock Keeper's Coliagu." "Orchestra and ChoruH," which is ju'st what the Utlu Implies, has little excuse for ¡In being. It is much like trick music—it may be a feat but (.here is 1 lit In real beauty in its performance. The colors are muddy, the drawing unhappy and the composition not especially pleasing. The way most of the violinists hold their bows would drive a. music instructor mad—one elongated-faced individual is even bowing on the neck of hi» vi'olln. Not far from the c'uonis ladle» and gentlemen, i.huir lips forever doomed to gape apart by the artist who gave thum a misera bio immortality on canvas, Is one of tliu most attractive «till lift?*, decora- lively, in the exhibit, "Mid Winter Blossoms." Another still life by Constance Curtis takes its coloi motif from a Japanese print whicli malees a purt of the background of tho oil. Chrysanthemums in greyed violet and green aru in a bowl, scattered fruit on the tnlilu giving the more intonso color notes and mulling ot the whiMe a most charming painting. In much higher key is Dorothy Oeht- muii'» "HIiu«. and Orange," another still lil'n—.simply a bowl,of bino and orange flowers— ;\ color Bcherza. "Sunset and Moonglow}' Is a large canvas popular with many visitors to tho gallery. Miss Colton is a pupil of Daingcrficld and her painting has his brilliance of color though not his depth. "Sun»et;and Moonslow" is just a little Jut, though as n whole successfully donn. There are a great many-harbor pictures in the collection, the love- .iest perhaps being Jane Peterson's "Harbor ac Gloucester.", The composition is 'excellent and the subdued colors rather suggest the study' was made . toward, dusk. 'Sandy Harbor" is a more flashy fiicture—the colors are less gray- id, the brush work broader and less restrained but the composition is not so good. A most unattractive portrait'is one called "Meditation." A woman in a Chinese coat Is at a table in -what may be a sun room. At any rate the many windows open put on a ghastly green background and on : the table is a hot- Lie of. some .brilliant red liquid. The color scheme is, one would guess, supposed:-to be daring but it succeeds in being nothing more than futile. '.....'• / However, there are many good portraits in the exliibit-^-one, Rdith Phelps' "Reflections" which was--awarded! honorable mention by the Connecticut Academy of Fine Arts-in 1920. "The Black Fan" to many is the most beautiful portrait: in the exhibit. The drawing is excellent, all the details are carefully worked out— even the setting has been carefully detailed to suit the mood of the portrait. Miss Lufkin's painting of -the lace. fischu is remarkable—it is filmy and light and yet she has painted so carefully one can even see the mesh. The hair is especially well painted and .the hands are beautilnlly modeled. Despite the care which Miss Lufkin undoubtedly exercised in working out the. details of her portrait, she has"' not lost- the spirit of the painting in working over it. It is ¡i commendable piece ''"•!'• ' . . . . - The exhibit, including miniatures and' "'.br.otizesi. will re' ¿ main in" "''IBtn'porln.. until July 1 and • .'is the last exhibit, to be brought to Ihe Teachers College, until sometime in tho winter.' Less than two weeks remain for Kmporiaus to sue the visit, and it is something that should not be missed.—R. J. C.
