ART WORK WAS DONE BY KANEKO JOHKOH, COUSIN OF REV. G.G. NAKAYAMA, AND WAS GIVEN TO REV. NAKAYAMA AS A GIFT. THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY WERE ORIGINALLY FROM VANCOUVER AND WERE INTERNED IN SLOCAN CITY DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR. FOLLOWING THE WAR THE NAKAYAMA FAMILY MOVED TO COALDALE, ALBERTA. AT COALDALE REV NAKAYAMA FOUNDED THE ANGLICAN CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION WHERE HE WAS RECTOR FROM 1945 TO 1970. SEE RECORD P19970041001 FOR EXPANDED BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION AND PERMANENT FILE FOR FURTHER HISTORY. *UPDATE* IN 2015 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION ON THE ARTIST, KANEKO JOHKOH WAS FOUND ON HER WEBSITE, ARTISSPECTRUM.COM, AND THE BLOG OF THE AGORA ART GALLERY, NEW YORK. KANEKO JOHKOH WAS BORN IN OZU, JAPAN IN 1923. SHE BEGAN OIL PAINTING AT THE AGE OF 38, AND FIRST USED THE TECHNIQUE OF BOKUSHO, ABSTRACT CALLIGRAPHIC INK PAINTING, IN 1983. SIMPLICITY AND ZEN CALMNESS ARE FUNDAMENTAL TO HER COMPOSITIONS. SHE RARELY PLANS HER PAINTINGS, WORKING QUICKLY ON SPONTENAIETY AND IMPULSE. IN 1988 JOHKOH MOVED TO VANCOUVER. HER WORK HAS BEEN EXHIBITED ACROSS CANADA AND INTERNATIONALLY IN PARIS, TOKYO, AND NEW YORK. KANEKO JOHKOH IS THE FIRST COUSIN ONCE REMOVED OF THE DONOR, JOY KOGAWA. A POEM BY THE ARTIST, POSTED ON HER WEBSITE IN AUGUST 2012, IS LISTED AS BEING TRANSLATED BY KOGAWA. REV. NAKAYAMA AND HIS WIFE LOIS MOVED BACK TO VANCOUVER IN 1979 AFTER HIS RETIREMENT FROM THE CHURCH OF THE ASCENSION IN COALDALE. IT IS LIKELY THAT THIS ARTWORK CAME INTO THE NAKAYAMA'S POSSESSION DURING THIS LATER PERIOD OF THEIR LIVES, AS BOTH THEY AND JOHKOH WOULD HAVE BEEN LIVING IN VANCOUVER IN THE LATE 1980S.

SEE P19900020001-GA FOR LETHBRIDGE BREWERY HISTORY. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS. THE FOLLOWING BRIEF HISTORY OF THE LETHBRIDGE BREWERY GARDENS WAS DEVELOPED WITH INFORMATION FROM THE GALT MUSEUM BROCHURE 'ALBERTA'S PRIDE: A HISTORY OF THE LETHBRIDGE BREWERY' AND RECORD P19900020032. THE BREWERY GARDENS, LOCATED ON THE NORTHWEST HILLSIDE ADJACENT TO THE SICK'S BREWERY, WERE DESIGNED IN 1949 WITH THE HELP OF DR. W.H. FAIRFIELD, FORMER SUPERINTENDENT OF THE LOCAL DOMINION EXPERIMENTAL FARM. THE GARDENS WERE PLANTED WITH THE INTENTION OF KEEPING THE HILL FROM SLIDING, BUT BECAME A TOURIST ATTRACTION, WINNING NUMEROUS AWARDS. INITIALLY THE GARDENS FEATURED A CENTREPIECE "6" IN PLANTS AND FLOWERS THAT WERE MAINTAINED BY HEAD GARDENER TOM JONES. THE GARDENS WERE EXPANDED IN 1958 WHEN MORE SPRUCE TREES WERE PLANTED TO FORM A WINDBREAK, AND AGAIN IN 1965 WHEN A ROCK GARDEN AND WATERFALL WERE INSTALLED. WHEN THE BREWERY CEASED OPERATION IN 1990, THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE TOOK OVER THE MANAGEMENT OF THE BREWERY GARDENS.
