Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta Tueidny, Novotnbor 24, 1970 THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD 3 WESTERN PAINTER HAS ITCHY FEET-Jack Lee McLean of Wycliffe is British umbia's besl-known western arlisl. "I find it is exciting to capture nature as it is." He lakes at least one field trip a year. Gunther Smuda Photo Jack Lee McLean: western arlisl Cowboys, cattle and horses By ANNE EDWARDS CKANBROOK Jack Lee McLean has just finished build- ing a house with a huge stone fireplace near Wyeliffe, abou' 10 miles from Cranbrook. The locals think of McLean as a "ski and they point out the similarities between the new house and a ski lodge Others know him as a fisher- man or a hiker. But the key point about McLean is that he is an artist. The house is in the midst of those things Mc- Lean paints cowboys, cattle, horses and landscape. On a clear day, you can see far up the Kootenay valley, with those magnificent Rockies on the east and the more gentle peaks of the Purcells on the west. Cattle graze on St. Mary's Frame, which sur- rounds his house. Jack McLean is associated in the public mind with the Cari- boo area, for it was with his Cariboo paintings that he gam- ed his first major recognition. He says: "I became identi- fied with the Cariboo, and I like it." However, he has paint- ed many other places through- out B.C. He calls his work "semi- western kind of thing alpine and cowboy." It is strictly rep- resentational, and he says he has no desire to work in other genres: "I find it quite exciting trying to capture nature as it is." He adds: "My main objective Is lo do a painting so that peo- ple, when they look at it, will feel that they are there, as close to the real tiling as pos- sible, and to be able to enjoy it whether they are three feet away from it or 30. They shouldn't have to get a long way away to see what it's sup- posed, to be." Hs was born in Vancouver and grew up there. He thinks his interest in horses may have begun during a stay at Dia- mond Head on Mount Gari- baldi after the war. All sup- plies had to be brought in by packhorsc. McLean's only formal train- ing was two years of a .four- year course at the. Vancouver School of Art under veteran's aid sponsorship. "Then I got itchy he says. He had worked at many jobs, Including prospecting and mining, before he became a commercial artist. While work- ing commercially, he started working at his fine art. He dis- played at a few local shows, the paintings sold, and after two summers of showing on the lawns at Manning Park and in the Park Lodge, he decided to rely on his fine art for a living. He moved to Kimberley eight years ago. He was commissioned by the Douglas Ranch in the Cariboo to do a number of paintings. Since then the value of his work has tripled. Each year he chooses a spe- cific area, such as Mount Rob- son, and spends two weeks to a month hiking and camping, al- ways taking pictures. lie may return from a trip with 1.500 slides, which he uses for refer- ence. He takes the trips to "see and get like the way a pack will slip off a packhorse. "I look at color slide-, searching for a mood or an idea. I may change all the colors a camera doesn't al- ways give a correct color ren- the important point is Uiat the colors harmonize to provide the key to a definite mood. Slides are just the spark to get me going." "You can paint two or three hundred horses, and after you have done that, you begin to realize you don't even know them yet, because you find out something new all the time it may be the light or some- thing he says. It is practically impossible to get to art shows from the East Kootenay, so McLean does most of viewing through the medium of books. Charles Russell and Remington arc western masters he admires. "Where I've really been in- fluenced lately is by Andrew Wyeth." He considers Wyeth probably North America's top artist "and he doesn't go more than two miles away from his New England home. He is so unor- thodox, and yet he's right. To my knowledge, he is so much further ahead than tile other top men in his field. But something you just have to try to find out. that makes his work diffcrenet so that's what I do. McLean usually has a fall show at the Alexander Har- rison Galleries in Vancouver. Horsemanship club Raymond's plan RAYMOND (HNS) More than 50 people from the ages of 10 years to advanced grand- parents were on hand to hear Milo Barfus of the Department of Youth for Alberta brief them on horses and horsemanship [or 4-H clubs interested in the horse program.

Following a full evening of facts presented to assist a new club into action, the group voted to meet Friday Novem- ber 27, at 8 p.m. in the town hall to effect an organization for horse enthusiast people. At the coming meeting the deci- sion will be made as to what type of a club will be formed. There are a number of chil- dren under the 12 years of age admitted into membership of the 4-H club. Parents of these children have a desire to form a horsemanship club in which the f a m i 1 y all hold member- ship. Membership in the 4-H club requires a horse for each member. JH o s t families have one horse for all of ils mem- bers. Mr. Barfus spoke on horse type clubs pointing up saddle horse, halter, showmanship, western pleasure, western equitation, reining and trail. He spoke at some length on Lighthorse class horsemanship, foal yearlings, the two-year-old, three-year-old and the brood mare. Mr. Barfus answered a number of questions regarding each class from botli the younger people and adults who showed their interest. Jeff Hardy told of the value of membership in the 4-H and how it effects a club, the sup- port to he had from the De- partment of Youth and the in- tercompetilion between clubs which he stated is a fine thing for young people to t a k e part in.

An excellent program under the direction of Jack Chubey of Bow Island kept most of the teachers under the two school boards in c h e county thorough- ly engrossed and occupied. Opening address to all the teachers was delivered by Lucy Milne, ATA professional development consultant from Medicine Hat, who spoke on ;he topic of sell-evaluation. Miss Milne introduced the teachers to the prepared intro- ductory kit for self evaluation devised by the ATA which was available to all teachers and school systems for the area in which they were interested. She outlined the aims of self- evaluation, and then the meth- ods by which it could be I achieved, including orientation, critical analysis, design for change, re-evaluation and im- plementation of any changes. Teachers divided into three group sessions for the remaind- er of the morning. Many ele- mentary teachers attended a fine session entitled, "Ra- tionale for, and implementation of non-grading." This was led by Art Skau, principal at Can- yon Meadows School in Cal- gary, and a former assistant principal of the Calgary Uni- versity demonstration school. Dr. M.

He pointed out that the ATA was probably the strongest association of its type on the North American contin- ent, but that it would only be a unified and powerful ody if all the members pulled togeth- er and worked for the associa- tion rather than be apathetic. The afternoon again saw four major sessions, one of Ihcm running for the u'liolfi after- noon. In this session two dis- tinguished professors from the University of Calgary, Dr. Plattor and Dr. Elliolt involved a large crowd of teachers in a multi-sensory perception work- shop.
