Professor and Mrs. Olof Grafstrom
of the art department of Augustana
college on the third floor of the
Denkmann Memorial library this af

selves of the opportunity of visiting
the exhibit room, which will also
be open to the public tomorrow and
Wednesday afternoons. This Is the
annual exhibit of the college art de
partment. Professor Grafstrom has
on display about 50 of his best oil
paintings. Among these is his large
mountain scene from Lapland,
which won favorable mention at the
St. Louis exposition. Besides sev
eral views from Scandinavia and
other parts of Europe the Swedish
American master is showing many
paintings with scenes taken from
the vicinity of the trl-clties. A pic
turesque view of the Mississippi just
below Watertown and a knoll scene
from Zlon's hill are especially
worthy of mention.
IMTHODtCES SATSl'MA WARE.
Mrs. Grafstrom is showing some
of the latest designs in ceramics, In
troducing the Satsuma ware The
tone and coloring of her flat enamel
work Is very artistic. She uses the
conventional design with good ef
fect working In the historical Chi
nese and Japanese flowers and fruit.
Her lines are accurately drawn, but
are not too prominent, while the
many colors she uses are subdued
and arranged In very pleasing com
binations. Service plates, tea sets,
punch bowls make up for the most
part her exhibit.
