Calgary Gallerks art show THt CALGARY HERALD Wed , Oft ,71 29 Eskimo individuals now emerging as artists in their own right' Famed Canadian actor, writer Tommy Tweed dies in Toronto By Derek G. Whyre The Eskimo print Is a truly Canadian art form which has reached international recognition. It will diminish in quality as civilization extends its northward boundaries. Still however, the basic primitive feeling of Eskimo art is quite in evidence in the collection of stone-cuts and engravings now on display at Calgary Galleries. The art of the Eskimo is i n c I i n e d to b e considered collectively. Individuals are beginning to emerge as artists in their own right. Perhaps the best-known of these is K e n o j 11 a k whose 'Enchanted Owl' has been highly acclaimed. Another artist who is now being regarded in this same light is Pitscolak. From the now famous Eskimo Co-operative at Cape Dorset on Baffin Island, she was one of the first artists to practice there and now is one of a diminishing group. The exhibition was assembled to launch the publication of I he book "Pitsonlnk: Pictures out of my life" by Dorothy Eber. It is the first book to be published in an English-Eskimo edition and is a collection of Pitseolak's prints and drawings accompanied by an informal text. Alma Houston and Mary Craig of Canadian Arctic Producers, Ottawa selected PITSEOLAK'S WINTER CAMP IS ON DISPLAY WITH OTHER ESKIMO ART ... all conveying a basic primitive feeling at Calgary Galleries Venice had first Chinese films this year but Yorkton had some in 1962 and in 1964 YORKTON, Sask. (Special) This August, the 1971 Venice Film Festival made a great do-do about the fact that the People's Republic of China would "for the first time participate in an inter-national motion picture event." "The Chinese are coming! The Chinese are coming!" Venice's advance announcements heralded. To the Yorkton Interna- t i o n a 1 Documentary Film Festival, such fanfare seemed a little anti-climactic, since presentations from Peking had been featured at. Yorkton's biennial Festivals back in 1962 and 1964. At that time, Festival audiences in the Saskatchewan city of 15,000 viewed On Night Duty, a film about the nocturnal adventures of an owl, Landscape Painting, on Least risk factor rules tv choices various schools and styles of Chinese painters, and Great Hall Of The People, a feature on a People's Palace, revealing the spirit of the Chinese people in its architectural design. The -records reveal that none of these submissions won an award. Though Peking hasn't been represented at the Yorkton Film Festival since 1964, the 1971 Festival has had no lack of other international entries. More than 80 films have been submitted from Japan, England, the Federal Republic of Germany, France, Australia, South Africa, Denmark. New Zealand, India, the Netherlands and other countries in cluding, naturally, Canada. Awards, including the festival's Golden Sheaf trophy, will be made following the October 20 to 22 public screenings, by the adjudication panel, critic Frank Mor-riss, film editor Jean Oser, and actor Graydon Gould. WANTED GIRLS (To Meet Guys) For Free Confidential Information Phone 262-4527 NEW YORK (AP) Les Brown, television-radio editor of Variety, says in a new book that a major ingredient in the selection of a show for television is the fear of making the wrong choice. The right choice is a show or a schedule that attracts more viewers than the competition and hence commands higher prices for commercials, he says in Television: The Business Behind the Box. The right choice also is a show that offends no one and attracts no complaints. Few executives are willing to risk their upward mobility or the company's fortunes on anything new or experimental. One network vice-president told Brown, "We don't pick the shows we think will have the best chance of becoming popular. To be honest, we're attracted to those that seem to have the least chance of failing." ' This fear also is corporate. He writes: "Since television is a highly conspicuous business, and always under the watch of politicians, it does not benefit a broadcast company to look for controversy." EXECUTIVES UNHAPPY : Early copies of the book already are circulating among network executives and the reaction is one of unhappi-ness. It deals in the personalties who occupy the executive suites, and Brown with flashes of humor records the adroitness, absurdities, fears and peccadillos of those who wage the ratings war. Brown charges that the tv system "produces broadcasters who are one part conscience and nine parts profit motive." : HELP ', yourself to o better way of living ACT NOW LOLA'S DATING CLUB No. 00. 630 8th Av.

Alberta. ejJ the pieces for the exhibition. The book provides a vivid insight into the present life of the Eskimo and a look into the past. It well illustrates the change the Eskimo has had to make, apparently with a lack of serious strife. The whole way of life in the North is necessarily one of adaptability and it is to be expected that as civilization moves in on him, the Eskimo will lose a part of his heritage in the absorption process. The text and illustrations reveal Pitseolak as a pure-child-like soul whose ready acceptance of her lot is refreshing in its outlook. Her work is inspired by remembered incidents, the happenings of today and imaginary beings of Eskimo legend. Being one of a race of highly imaginative beliefs, her drawing of mythical figures is decorative and expressive. Her attitude is one of wonderment at her own success and she is quietly amused by the importance accorded her by the people of the south. The book is successful in that the text complements the drawings in such a way that together, they provide a much greater understanding of Eskimo culture than could be achieved by cither one by itself. The show is comprised of some fifty prints made during the period between 1963 and 1970. Some of these are reproduced in Die book. Most are black and white but those which show color are quiet and restrained in its use. The gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 9:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. Open until 9:00 p.m. on Fridays.
