History / Biographical
Annora Brown was born outside of Red Deer in 1899 and died at the age of 88 in Deep Cove, British Columbia in 1987 where she retired. Brown is one of the Alberta’s foremost early artists. Based for much of her life in historic Fort Macleod, Brown played a major role in creating a ‘picture’ of Southern Alberta: its wild landscape, First Nations, pioneer rural communities, local history- above all its wondrous nature symbolized by the wildflower. Her work was able to capture the culture of the First nation communities that she lived near. Her father was Edmund Foster Brown and mother was Elizabeth Ethel (Cody) Brown. Her mother supported and encouraged Brown’s love for art and from 1925-1929 Brown attended the Ontario College of Art in Toronto. She returned in 1929 and developed and art program for Calgary’s Mounted Royal College but later had to leave due to her mother’s illness. A student of the celebrated landscape painters, known as the Group of Seven (1920-1933), Brown’s artistic practice spans the 1930s to mid-1980s. During that time, she cobbled together a living as an artist, often by teaching, illustrating books and magazines, and selling, whenever she could, her captivating paintings in watercolor, tempera oil and later serigraph prints. In 1945-1950, brown worked as a respected artist and teacher at the Banff School of Fine Arts. She was also commissioned to paint over 200 western wild flowers for the Glenbow Foundation. Brown’s work was also included in Crescent Heights High School in Calgary, University of Alberta in Edmonton, United College in Winnipeg, and the Canadian Handicrafts Guild in Montreal. She was also awarded a prize in the Alberta Government’s 1955 Jubilee Contest for Alberta painters. In 1965 Brown retired to Deep Cove British Columbia to paint and garden. She had given a “voice” to a region that had been rarely presented in Canadian art. Her attention to the unique aspects of Old Man’s Country like Niitsitapi, the character and isolation of its small rural communities as well as its unforgettable environment was expressed mainly through her focus on wildflowers and native plants. Buoyed by the conviction that a woman’s activities “need not be limited to polishing furniture and raising babies”, Brown was also a writer and author of two books: the Western Canadian classic Old Man’s Garden and her autobiographical Sketches from Life. She was the first woman to receive an honorary degree from the University of Lethbridge in 1971 for her contribution to “western art and living.” (written by Mary-Beth Laviolette; Summer 2016 Gallery Exhibit at Galt Museum)

Lethbridge Artists’ Club
Physical Description
28 cm of textual records 375 photographs 1 audiocassette 1 collage poster
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.

History / Biographical
Edward Frederick (Ted) Hagell was born in Lethbridge on 20 June1895. He was the son of Edward G. and Ellen Hagell, who came to Lethbridge in 1893. Ellen Hagell was Mr. Hagell's second wife. His first wife, Kate died giving birth to their child. Kate's sister Ellen was sent from England to Canada as a 'replacement' wife to raise Kate. Ted Hagell had two sisters, Violet and Freda, and a brother Albert. Mr. Hagell and the two Mrs. Hagells were all born and raised in Maidstone, Kent, England. After some time in Saskatchewan, the Hagells moved to Lethbridge where Mr. Hagell worked for E.T. (Si) Saunders, owner of the Lethbridge News. In 1900 Mr. Hagell became a partner in the newspaper, and in 1905 sole owner upon the retirement of Mr. Saunders. Mr. Hagell sold the newspaper in 1910, and continued to work as a job printer until he and his family moved to British Columbia in 1924. Mr. and Mrs. Hagell both died in Vancouver, in April 1953 and December 1954 respectively. Ted Hagell exhibited a talent for drawing early in life. He developed a love of the prairie landscape looking out from the family's home near what is now the intersection of 7 Avenue and 11 Street South. The major artistic themes in his work were the prairie landscape, animals and the pioneer era of western Canada. Mr. Hagell worked primarily in pen and ink, but also in oils. He studied in New York and Los Angeles, and lived in Vancouver and on a farm near Toronto before returning to southern Alberta in 1952 to live in Pincher Creek. Mr. Hagell and his wife settled in Lethbridge in October 1963, just over a year before his death. During his lifetime Ted Hagell produced about 1,500 works of art, wrote poetry and short stories, and published one book. His work was shown in exhibitions in Canada, the United States and England. Ted Hagell married Cora Marie Pelletier on 27 October 1919. The couple had three sons, Barnett, Gordon and Ronald. Although a an recognized in the arts community for his talent, Ted Hagell achieved only limited financial success with his art. Ted Hagell died in Creston, B. C. on 28 December 1964, age 69. His wife Cora also died in Lethbridge, on 17 September 1981. Both are buried in Mountain View Cemetery.
