MASON CftTY GLOBE-GAZETTE ' ^. x ' ___ ' t W I L L E E E X H I r MARCH 13 tm 1931 of Galtery Will Speak on Art Theresa Bernstein Work to Be "Displayed at " ~' Lib'rary. A.rrangements have "been made by the'art department of^the Woman's club for the showing'of a group of modern paintings by Theresa Bernstein which have been on display at the Little Gallery at Cedar Rapids. Edward Rowan of the Little Gallery will speak at the meeting Which will be^held Tuesday afternoon at the library assembly at 2:30 o'clock. ( ^ i Mr. Rowan will speak on the ten_ dencies in J modern painting and on the works-of Miss Bernstein in particular. Miss Bernstein recently held a one-man show at the-New York Grand Central galleries. ' On her work the International'Studio magazine says: "In her earlier-work this artist was bound by a painstaking serious technique which expressed itself in-a color low in key. The paintings were none the less power ful--as witness the "Poliah Church' --and they achieved a certain unity, of purpose thru the seriousness'of approach. ' I '"Nevertheless one is drawa by the i freedom In the latter work--and the vitality. For where freedom in an artisj's work is aa outgrowth of such intelligence aa Miss Bernstein displays, it is a vital, living thing " Writing drthe artist's atyle the New York Times says "The effect is one of extraordinary freedom and ~ daring. The artist is so manifestly master of her instrument^so many possibilities open out before her intelligent gaze she turns from intricacy to plainness" that we move from picture to picture in admiration " The New York Herald Tribune mentions the 1 change m the artist's style predicting "it is likely she wOI develop more interesting color harmonies as she proceeds. The warrant for that assumption lies m the vitality which she now secures. Her portraits and her landscapes both have character and in the simplification of her problems she uses a deftness and an expressiveness." FIRST GIRL SCOUT f / Associated Press Photo MRS. SAMUEL C.
