Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 28, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Ontario hikes liquor prices TORONTO (CP) An in- crease in the price of liquor, wine and beer was announced today by the Ontario Liquor Control Board. The increase is effective Jan. 6. The board said the basic in- creases will be 50 cents on a 25-ounce bottle of liquor, 40 cents on a 24-bottle case of beer and 20 cents on a 26- ounce bottle of wine. Beer, now selling for for a 24-bottle case, is being increased to Cost of im- ported beer remains un- changed. A 25-ounce bottle of Cana- dian whisky, now selling for is being increased to Other spirits, in all price ranges, are being raised similar amounts. All 26-ounce bottles of wine, imported and Canadian, are being increased 20 cents. The increase will be slightly higher for larger bottles of wine. The board said the price changes are necessary as a re- sult of increased excise taxes announced in the last federal budget and which went into ef- fect Nov. 18. Since that date, the increased taxes have been absorbed by the board. The board added, however, that the new, higher prices will provide additional revenue to Ontario wineries and Canadian breweries which requested higher prices to help offset increasing costs. NOTICE!

Indian artist gains world fame college cinema ITS WINNIPEG (CP) Daphne Odjig Beavon, one of Canada's most promising na- tive artists, has won acclaim on three continents with her vivid prints of Indian folklore. Now, with the opening of The New Warehouse Gallery behind her native art shop in downtown Winnipeg, Miss Od- jig is hopeful that her fellow artists in Western Canada will get the recognition and en- couragement that often elude them close to home. "It's tough for an artist coming up, because not every gallery is willing to exhibit the new she said. "If someone had given me that chance 10 years ago, I would have been very happy." "A lot of white galleries look at a person's dossier be- fore they decide whether to exhibit him.'' The gallery is believed to be the first in Canada totally owned and operated by native people. It is intended as a place where artists can ex- hibit their works without pay- ing the heavy commissions and fees charged by some pri- vate galleries. Equally important, it is a place where a variety of art forms will be presented, not simply the traditional work often identified in the public mind as the only kind of na- tive art. Miss Odjig is adamant on this point: "We want to com- pete in the world as artists, not to go on the bandwagon as Indian artists." The gallery's first show, which opened Dec. 8, is a good illustration. Nine other ar- tists, some of them well- known in art circles and some just getting started, joined Miss Odjig in the exhibition. The styles of the artists are every bit as varied as their backgrounds. Manitoba's Jackson Beardy, for example, is an expert on mythology who began painting as a hobby and was "discovered" during an illness by hospital staff members impressed with his work. Alex Janvier of Edmonton studied at the Alberta College of Art for four years, drifted away from art and now is back in the field after nearly six years. Joseph Sanchez is a Pueblo Indian who came to Canada at the age of 10 and now lives at Giroux, Man. Only 26, he has exhibited his work in Win- nipeg, Toronto and London. Miss Odjig grew up on the Wikwemikong Indian reserve on Manitoulin Island, 180 miles northwest of Toronto, and was captivated by the many legends her grand- parents told her. Using her own imagination and self-taught skills, she translated the legends into paintings and later bold and forceful prints as well as murals and illustrations for a series of children's books. Miss Odjig kept her maiden name professionally, but little else about her work has re- mained the same over the years. She has used the fine lines of pen and ink to capture scenes of northern life. She has used ground peanut shells, pine cones, wild rice and beads to make collages. Her latest interest is abstract work, verging on the occult and heavy with what she de- scribes as spiritualism. "You have to experiment to she said. "I have been able to retain my own in- dividuality and my art has progressed through different stages because I have been learning through my own ex- perimenting." Miss Odjig's career has taken her to the Smotra Folk- lore Festival in Yugoslavia and to Visey, Sweden, as the recipient of the Brucebo Foundation Scholarship, and her works have been seen at the Gallery Anthropos in Lon- don and Expo 70 in Japan. For the present, however, Miss Odjig said she would like to remain closer to home. Despite the work associated with the opening of her new gallery and plans for exhibits next year in Montreal and Ot- tawa, her real hope was to concentrate on her own con- tinuing development as an ar- tist.
