vaughan grayson "prince kootenay lake" bc 1894-1995
vaughan grayson became particularly adept in recording the landscape of the west in paintings, silkscreens, sketches, and words. her particular subject was the canadian rockies, though later in life she recorded the views near her house in the okanagan, and traveled extensively with her paintbox. in a finely curated show now on at banffís whyte museum of the canadian rockies, every aspect of graysonís life as an artist and traveler is represented.the work encompasses her early journeys into the rockies, where she painted large canvases of known scenic spots that rival the work of walter j. phillips in their cool, green beauty. originally from moose jaw, where her fatherís prominent position afforded her the opportunity for an arts-heavy education in boston and new york, grayson would devote her life to painting, and to teaching others about painting. she taught in moose jaw schools and wrote extensively on the subject of art, directed at children and teenagers. though she successfully showed work at public galleries in the Okanagan and at the vancouver art gallery before she died in 1995, grayson never sold any of her work, her family has donated a sizeable collection of canvases to the moose jaw museum and art gallery. itís a glimpse into the life and work of an artist whose work is not often seen, but who spent her life recording the beauty of the western canadian landscape. the dimensions framed 19 1/2"x19 1/2" signed and titled by the artist "prince kootenay lake" bc
