PUBLIC INVITED SHARING By MAE Miiylio it is because it Is wartime that people generally want something to stimulate the foeliiiK of the ci-rtalnties of existence that art is» Vifing .so warmly re-reived in Bakcrsficld. llayhn the groups that visited the now Baker.sfielcl Art Association headquarters In the Stoncr building Sunday were migmcntod by newcomers from other areas more- fortunate in having arp galleries as a part of heritage and wero glad to find one here. Whatever the reason, there could lie no doubt of the real enthusiasm and interest in the exhibit of Alexandra Hradshaw's pictures .Sunday. The display will lie open again to tin: public on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and there will lie private showings to interested groups during the week. It is fortunate that the first one-man .show of the art gallery should possess the outstanding merit that is basic in the work of -Miss liradshaw. Her medium is watorculor ana the sparkling quality of a. great number of the pictures has been seemingly dictated by the artist's own affinity for the ocean, shore coves, rocks, waves, foam and sunlight. Most of the pictures are scenes captured close to her own home at Laguna, but she also appreciates the subtle moods of the San Jon- quin valley, too. Of the latter, are "New Green," "I'each Orchard" and others. The inhabitable ocean of bathers, the playful and rhythmic -surge of the sea. as • those, who sit. and watch waves come to Know it. the warm In of SAlNDEHS tawny, sunlit sand for sun bathers, are sonic of the.' mood.s translated by Hie artist. Her clarity and subtlety with the brush are matched with a fluency of style that provide spontaneity and a jny that Is truly communicative to the spectator. It takes rare skill on the part of the artist to shaty a.s fully as this with the beholder those meditative, fanciful and refreshing flashes of .seaside experience. Her studies made ill .Mexico were pleasant, too, but a little less iin- bueil willi the integral enchantment nf experience that her sea scenes possess. It is hniieil that the Art Association can keep a flow of exhibits coining to the nailery, Organi/.a- tious such as ilie .\meriraii Association of I'nivcrsily Women, the Woman's Club and oilier groups that initiate exhibits can share I bein with I lie community by helping to pass them also to the Art Association.
