Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 29, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta X British actress handles two wide-apart roles NEW YORK (AP) Wide- apart roles are no problem for Mary Ure, who started her career as the Virgin Mary in medieval drama and has rang- ed since frdm period ele- gance to modern angry. This season, the British ac- tress has parts on Broadway and on tour in Love for Love, a witty Restoration charade, and The Rules of the Game, a distraught 19th century ro- mance. "I don't think human nature .has changed very much since the beginning of she said, dismissing any apparent differences in.the character of William Congreve's heroine Angelica and Luigi Pirandello's Silia three cen- turies later. The workout with the New Phoenix Company has given Miss Ure fresh challenge. The two plays were rehearsed si- multaneously, under different directors, even though one won't be publicly performed until the run of the other is completed. The reason: re- duced funding. For'a leading lady who has directing ambition herself, such strenuous preparation proved rewarding. "Both are she said of Harold Prince, stager of Love for Love, and Stephen Porter; calling signals for The Rules of the Game. "They approach their work from completely different points of view, which is very stimulating for the actor. One has to adapt to each man's thinking 'and way of working. "I don't think the public ever realizes how adaptable, how diplomatic, a performer has to be in going from one part to another." 'Miss Ure shows her own flair for tact when discussing the comparative virtues of playwrights past and present or their interpreters on stage and screen. "I don't think one can really make comparisons in the arts. Everything is so individual and so different. There's Bach and there's Mozart. And, in acting you can't say one per- former is better than another. That's why I dislike awards very much." She doesn't conceal, how- ever, a personal preference for the films which have mo- nopolized most of her energies of late. The most recent Ure stage appearance in London was in 1968. Two years ago she participated with her husband, Robert Shaw, and Rosemary Harris in Harold Pinter's Old Times on Broadway. "There are a lot of good film directors that I'd like to work for, although movies seem now to be a dying she said. "But whenever there's a de- pression, money gets very short and the arts are the first thing to go."

Priceless paintings chosen for display at anniversary PARIS -Just over 100 years ago they were compared by some to the dabblings of children. But today, the 42 canvases hanging in the Grand Palais here to celebrate the 100th taf niversary of impressionism represent one of the finest and richest collections of pain- tings ever assembled under one roof. The paintings have been se- lected from galleries through- MEET GLEN PURNELL dndidite for Progressive Conservative Nomination CARDSTON CONSTITUENCY "Deputy Minister of Agriculture" He worked under the policy supervision of Dr. Hugh Minister of Agriculture and Deputy Premier said "Glen Purnell has played a key role in working along side me in- developing policies and programs for Alberta Agriculture.

Inserted by PURNELL FOR PROGRESS COMMITTEE out the world, notably the Louvre and New York's Met- ropolitan Museum of Art. They include works by Monet, Manet, Pissarro, Degas, Re- noir, Cezanne and Sisley. The organizers justly claim -that it is once-in-a-lifetime experience. It is unlikely that such an exhibition, with prohi- bitive insurance, packing and travel costs, will be repeated before the second centenary of the movement. Although modern critics now dissect the impression- ists' differences rattier than what they have in common, their impact on the contempo- rary scene was of a, group of nonconformists trying to sabo- tage art. One Paris journalist wrote of Monet's Sunrise, "The im- pression of sunrise is as if it were done by the infantile hand of a schoolboy spreading' color on some surface for the first To help explain this point another exhibition of contem- porary 19th century estab- lished art has been assembled in the Luxembourg Palace here. The contrast is striking. The established artists depicted their subjects with the ac- curacy of cameras, and the idealized human subjects so that they seemed like relics from Homer's Odyssey. But the impressionists did not want their work to look eternal or unchangeable. Their aim was to depict their subjects as they appeared in the mind's eye at that instant, in a fluid vibration of color. The colors they used were mainly the bright ones, and whether painting Paris under snow or two absinthe drink- ers, the essential quality is the interplay between light and color. But their critics did not see things in that light. "Their ex- hibition is a frightful spec- tacle of human vanity turned to the daily news- paper Figaro said. "M. Pissarro must be made to understand that trees are not blue, that sky is not the shade of fresh butter aridthat no intelligent'person can ac- cept' such stupidity." Spurned by the established art world and banished from the official French salon, the impressionists held their first exhibition in a photographers studio near the Paris Opera. Above the main gallery at the Grand Palais the organ- izers have drawn together many of the documents from that first display together with illustrated biographies and key dates. Some of the works have been x-rayed and the results put on show to suggest how the impressionists' brushwork blurred and sacrificed detail to feeling. Audio-visual studies have been erected and ticket- holders can hear taped lec- tures with appropriate slides and music on many of the background subjects to the ar- tists' revolt. SASKATOON (CP) A three-year study of factors that might contribute to the growth of the arts in remote Saskatchewan communities is being undertaken by the University of Saskatchewan with help from the Canada Council The project, in which provincial and university funds also are being used, may have a direct application to other parts of the country, in communities where the arts have some stirring but are generally looked upon as an effete urban pastime. The university's extension department, headed by Dr. Brock Whale, has been plann- ing the project for three years, and has just won a 000 grant from the Canada Council under its program to explore new ways of artistic expression. The project is being guided by Shirh Walls, who has had wide experience in communi- ty activities in Saskatchewan and was formerly a full-time employee of the extension department Three communities each ly- ing 100 or more miles away from Saskatoon will be picked for the project. They have not been officially designated, but the university is looking for towns which are off the beaten track of arts activities. They will be towns of to population with a farming base, some industrial activity and a typical mixture of ethnic backgrounds. As Dr. Whale described the project in an interview, such towns might have an amateur art group, a major church choir, or some other activity related to the arts Typically, the group or groups may have been struggling for years without any professional help. The project hopes to develop the latent talent by showing the amateur group how it could obtain help from the province's arts council or the university in improving the quality of its work. in with the project 'would be training for the leaders of the group, helping them raise standards and sus- tain them after the three-year project ends. Dr. Whale emphasized that the project does not intend to go into a community and tell it how to run its business, or to force the arts onto it A major purpose of the proj- ect is research; to find out what needs to be done to raise the artistic consciousness of people living in remote'areas. A large part of the federal funds given through the Canada Council will be employed in travel expense and the parttime services of the project leader.

The uni- versity and the Canada Coun- cil hope this will be of use to other parts of the country. In such areas as rural central Saskatchewan, Dr. Whaie said, the work ethic is strong and overrides other factors in man's existence. People here tend to think of music, drama and art as an idle man's pastime But the arts are an enrich- ment of life and tney have as rightful a role in remote areas as in the big cities paramount Tonight and Wed. at and p.m. Nil COftftY HARRY 6AYURBAY paramount cinema Tonight and Wed. at and p.m. 3enf ieid was a New England girf s school 195C The curncvtum ranged from Latin to Etiquette From TO Field Hockey There were a lew things the school dtdrti teach Thatswhatthismovie is about ADULT-HOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN Tonight and Wed. and p.m. Adult not suitable for children Tuesday.
