Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 3, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta lucsiluy, ffovinliri .1, THE UTMBRIDGE IlL'RAlP 3 I liv D'.MllT IllCK.Mll) ilcralil Sli'T Wrilrl CALUAJIY South Alberta, ;is everyone knows, is the land of the big sky, big mountains, foothills, rushing rivers i sweeping plains. JX. It's Ihe land of bean's desire for many and a favored spot for artists. One of the best is Gerald Tailfcalbers of Standoff. But the big city, Lclhbridge or Calgary, so far as painting is concerned, is the source fi-om which all blessings flow. It is taking a lot for granted to expect them lo flow miles from their headwaters just to indulge the whim of an artist who prefers lo live on the Blood Indian Reserve. Almost like asking Ihe mountain to come Lo Mohammed. Yet it works! Ger- ald Tailfeatbers has maintain- ills ibuok ed his studio at Standoff the past 11 years. for li; In 1939, niter working us a draftsman in Calgary, the art- ist returned lo (lie reserve. He built a studio near his bouse, fenced off a pasture for his horses and settled down to paint pictures. It was a big gamble but it paid off. His oil paintings com- mand high prices now but it took a lot of all-night sessions at Ihe easel lo reacli this hap- py plateau. Today Tailfealhers is show- ing 51 paintings and designs at the Glenbow Foundation 902 Hth Ave. Southwest. Calgary. The show continues to Nov. 22. His works reveal sincerity and thoroughness. In fact these trails are the basis of the man's character, his attitude toward life. He will go to surpjising pains to make SUIT a painting is right. The Blood reserve is a happy hunting ground for an artist of the out-of-doors, of horses, In- dians and laded dreams of the plains Indian. "I can often get access to authentic Indian costumes. As to horsemen, the country is full of them and a cowboy is al- ways at hand to cast a critical eye upon my drawings." He knows the Rockies, foot- hills and plains. These he has painted, scanned, sketched and camera accompany him where ever he goes. First be sketch- es, then be makes photographs' of the same subject.
