ii. r-AMILY Prairie painter applied east ideas REGINA (CP) In 1923, when he was 18, lllmgworth Kerr left his home town of Lumsden, 15 miles northwest of here and headed for To- ronto to further his art In one year he had won 13 of 15 fir'-1 prizes for art at the Regm_ Exhibition He al- readj knew he could draw better than anyone else in Lumsden and, having beaten 'the kids from the big city" of Regma, decided to try his luck in Toronto I arrived in Toronto with to set an art education, he in an interview while in ia for a showing of his work I always was sort of im- practical, I guess I used to think that if I had 50 bucks, I was happy If I had a hun- dred I was rich That sort of philosophy has helped me a lot over the years For four years, Mr Kerr studied at the Ontario College of Art in Toronto LEARNED ABOUT COLOR When I went there I did not know the first thing about color I had mainly done know, copies of old calendars and pictures Whenever I added color it tended to be garish and if I bought a sweater it was bound to be !oud e college he studied unde Mch artists as Fred J E H MacDonald and Arihur Lismer members of the Group of Seven Although he termed his art training Mr Kerr enjoyed it "I liked ev- ery minute of art school, but I hated Toronto Every Westerner I met in the east was homesick and that gave me the idea to come back the west' He Aso drawn back to the Prairies by a desire to ap- ply to the West some of the techniques and ideas he had absorbed in the east "The Group of Seven had a stylized quality which ap- pealed to me, although I was probably closer to Tom Thom- son than to the Group "I saw that the Group was painting other parts of Can- ada but nobody was reallj painting the Prairies in a con- temporary style So I really wanted to try to translate some of the things I learned from the Group into the spa- tial qualities of the west HIT BY DEPRESSION In 1927 Mr Kerr returned to the west and established a studio in Lumsden But the Depression set in, sales of paintings were few and far between and he took an as- sortment of jobs to keep him self going After eight years of strug- gling to make it, he became depressed and discouraged I burned an awful lot of paintings in those days I just went into the attic, earned down a lot of paintings and dumped them in the gar- bage' He worked his way to Eng- land on a cattle boat and studied at the Westminster School of Art in London To earn money, he wrote short stones which were pub- lished in a British hterarv periodical Blackwood s Magazine I started writing bedause I wanted to illustrate a story, Mr Kerr explained "I couldn t get work illustrating others stories, so I wrote my own In 1945 he returned to Can- ada to teach at the Vancouver School of Art Two years later he became head of an art school in Calgary which later developed into the Al- berta College of Art He retired from the college seven vears ago In recent years, after mov- ing through a more personal landscape style and abstract painting, Mr Kerr has re- turned to painting animals and landscapes 'I would like to achieve things now that I didn't have the technical knowledge to do in the 193 )s he said 'I am doing more colorful paintings on a larger canvas and I'm us- ing a lot of color concepts I wouldn't have dreamed of us- ing in the old days I d guess you d call that _______________ Christies schedule art sale
