Ralph Conner, Kitchener artist whose paintings are well known throughout Ontario, was elected a director of the Western Art League at London, Ont., last night.
Otway F. Hayden was re-elected president for the third successive year.
In his annual report Mr. Hayden mentioned a record membership of 553.
His report also pointed to the value of membership in the form of four demonstrations, invitations to all previews and an opportunity to participate in the annual Western Ontario Art Exhibition.
The league decided that the names of jury members to choose exhibits for the annual exhibition will in future be made public.
In previous years it was the practice to publish the name of one professional member, the two non-professionals remaining secret.
