8 Golesburo Register-Moil, Galesburg, Monday, Oct. 7, 1963 J4id -Approach, to ^^tt for ^^rlcjCea^ Working from a palette that by personal choice is almost exclusively minus blue, artist Elvin Mauk of Ogden, 111. combines elements of surrealism, abstract composition and sophisticated use of primitive character* istics into a personal state- Id ment on painting, as seen in a selection of oils from work accomplished over the past 10 years In this month 's Art League exhibit in the YMCA Community Lounge. A weekend guest of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Blaze, Mr. Mauk attended the opening tea Sunday afternoon and mingled informally with attending art fans, discussing details of his technique and approach to art. The artist varies his handling of favorite themes; in a still life there may be a crisp rendering of detail approaching trompe l'oeil as in "We Lay Up Our Treasures," hung in the alcove, while an ethereal dreamlike quality pervades "A Still Life," on the west wall. A surrealist abstract is seen in "I Listened for the Sound of the Unicorns," while in "Almost For gotten Moment," fence posts and lonely pillars In a high-grown meadow are recognizable objects in a dreamlike scene with surrealistic feeling. Meadow grasses and plants as lone subject matter are handled successfully in three paintings; with a swath of sky in "First Mo ments of Spring" or without any other elements at all in "Ground Cover." These themes are repeated in a series of miniatures mounted on a table easel on the lounge piano. Tea was served during the afternoon, with serving honors accorded Mrs. Louis Ubben, president of the Art League. The tea table was decorated with autumn flowers and tiny African figurines. Preceding introduction of the artist to those present, Mrs. Ubben reminded the group that the Tri-Arts masked costume ball takes place Nov. 2 and that she may be called, for tickets; read the schedule of exhibits at the Decatur Art Center from a brochure which accompanied an invitation to area residents to attend exhibits there; and announced that tickets for the showing of the film "Track 13" may be obtained from any local minister. The show was arranged in the lounge by the artist, assisted by Robert Mears, Fred Rathgeber, Mrs. Blaze and Mrs. Ubben, and will remain on the walls for the month of October.

Mrs. Elmer Jagow, chairman of decorations, assisted by Mr, and Mrs. Ed Pettit, has selected the color scheme of three shades of green and one of electric blue, with metallic gold and silver ac cents, and will design the overall decorations format. She also se lected the theme for the ball: "Fantasy of Love." Discussing costume interpretations of the theme she said, "When you give it some thought, the costume possibilities are just about endless. The subject of love —how many facets does it have? Glamor, pathos, tragedy, comedy, in fact and in fiction." Celebrated romantic lovers of history and fable might be represented by elegantly attired Caesar and Cleopatra or Romeo ,and Juliet. Popeye and Olive Oyl or a pair of outer space lovers from the planet Venus are possibilities for comedy interpretations. A group of Mrs. Elmor Jagow (center), shapes an impromptu fan from four color swatches in three shades of green and one of electric blue, the central color motif for this year's Tri-Arts Ball.
