ARTISTS BUSY If vou have friend (or rela tive) in the Lake Worth Art League don't expect him to speak to you this week, in fact, if he runs past at a galloping pace it's not that he conciously snubbed you, It's just his mind was on the million-and-one things that have to be done this week. It Is a frantic week for artists in the Lake Worth area. A Representational Exhibit of Paintings opened Sunday after noon with a preview tea in Strait Museum and will be open to the public through March SO from 2-5 p.m daily with a host or hostess on duty to answer your -questions. That big event of the year for Leaguers is commanding a lot of time and talent as the weekend Arts Fiesta gets underway Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Lake Worth's Bryant Park. The artist group Is not only exhibiting art and crafts and providing a mu ral for visitors to dabble colors on, but the League is organizing demonstrations each hour by a different artist. And as if that isn't enough, there will be music from the Band Shell and sketching. Dropped right into the middle of all of these preparations is the Thursday night demonstration of sculpturing techniques at the regular member's meeting at 8 p.m. at Carpenter's Hall. Alexander Tolin of Pompa-no will be the guest artist. Mr. Tolin, a Russian native, came to Ponipano via Turkey, New York City and Long Island, N.Y. He studied at the Art Shi-dents League, has exhibited In several group shows 'and won University anda one-man show! at Palm Beach Junior Col-j lege. Accompanying Mr. Tolin will be Lucius Salisbury, noted metal sculpturist of Boca Raton. In case you are planning to drop by Strait Museum for a quiet look at the Representa tional Exhibit of Paintings this week you'll want to notice the Awards of Merit entries. Ivan Hoon took a first place in oil for "White Shawl," Sulo Jappi- nen was watercolor winner for an interpretation of "Pansies" and "Living In the Past' captured first place for Helen Krieger in trie charcoal medium. Honorable mentions were presented to Guy E. Briggs for "Duck Blind" done In oil, to Margaret Earwood for "Slim'g Boat Shed," and to Margaret Ludwlg .for ."Remembrance of Summer," also an oil. These decisions were made by Wallace Bassford, well known instructor and director of the North Truro School of Art on Cape Cod, who during the win ter months has his studio on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach. Mr. Bassford, who was ludee for the show, paints after the French School style and has his works represented in the Metro politan Museum of Art, Boston Museum of Fine Arts and Toledo Museum. Not exhibited with a notation of "winner" but beautiful, each in its own way. are manv other paintings in the current Representational Show. "Water Lil ies" by Amelia Darr is so heau- tiful in color that it looks like a photograph. "Blowing Snow" by F.E. Morehouse Is very realistic with the snowflake streaks of snow on the canvas. "Guard Duty" by Miriam Woods has an eye appealing combination of rich greens of the forest Into which perches a little bird. "Fog" by Jean Freer Dictur- esquely features pelicans framing a ship at sea. "Far Away" by Walter Johnson creates a mood in addition to being a pretty picture with the use of variegated blues and a tree leaning In the foreground. You can sense uie stillness and al-oneness the picture portrays. Oh, by the wav. don't he ner. turbed if your friend doesn't I recognize you next week either. It could be he's lust reeunera- ting from this week of exciting activities.
