Lethbridge Artists’ Club

History / Biographical
The Lethbridge Artists’ Club first began when a group of citizens interested in organizing an art exhibition in 1932, held at the YMCA. By 1936, a number of Lethbridge artists decided to create a club to organize regular exhibitions and art classes that were previously offered on an irregular and informal basis. A meeting in October of that year at the home of Anna MacKenzie formalized the creation of the Lethbridge Sketch Club, with Miss Mackenzie serving as president. The club held meetings, classes, annual exhibitions and outings to various sites in southwestern Alberta. Group of Seven member A.Y. Jackson would attend club events and outings while visiting his brother Ernest in Lethbridge. His avant garde landscapes and enthusiasm for on-site sketching provided an influence to members of the Sketch Club in its early years. Further influences on the group were the instructors of the Banff School of Fine Arts, where the Club would send an annual scholarship winner, and the instructors of an annual summer session held in Lethbridge. The most frequent instructor of these sessions was H.G. Glyde of the Technical Institute in Calgary and later the University of Alberta. Over the years membership in the club grew and the club attained a more permanent space at the former Bowman School through a favorable agreement with Lethbridge School District # 51. When the building passed to the City of Lethbridge in 1963, City Council agreed to maintain the terms of the agreement the Club had with the School District. This agreement provided a basis for the establishment of the Bowman Arts Centre, as other arts and crafts groups and the Historical Society were also offered space in the building and classes were offered daily by a variety of groups of the Allied Arts Council of Lethbridge. The Club continued to organize regular classes, workshops, demonstrations, and outings and was able to present two exhibitions annually of works by its members. Sometime after 2002 the club was renamed the Lethrbidge Artists’ Club.

Scope and Content
The story unfolds in the Rocky Mountain Forest Reserves of Western Canada. Most of the action takes place in the North Fork Gap of the Oldman River and in the McGillvray and Allison valleys of the Crownest Pass. The main character, Rad Harker, raised in the cow country of southern Alberta, makes living as a ranch hand. He leaves his first good job for the 2-bar-reverse-K outfit in the Milk River Ridge country because of the "bold infatuation" on the part of the foreman's daughter. After making his way west, he finds job at the Fiddleback ranch, where he is hired by the Honeysett brothers. Rad developed affection for the owners' daughter - Iris Honeysett who return from their college schooling for the summer vacations. The story develops into a contest between quiet unassuming Harker and the boastful unprincipled Sam Parks for the heart of Iris. When Parks is exposed and defeated, Harker leaves the ranch believing he has nothing to offer to a ranch owners' daughter but eventually, with the help of friends, the young people find their happiness.
