Chief Hrkin. "I know that but you

ART STUDIO IS LAUNCHED
BY MRS. 0L0F GRAFSTROM
A new enterprise has been added to
the college community in t!te form of
an art studio. Mrs. Olof Grafstroni,
wife of the instructor in art at Augus
taua college and herself an artist cf
some note, is at the head of the new
venture, which promises t0 be a suc
cess frcm the start. Mrs. Grafstrom
has opened her studio on the busy
book concern corner. Just adjoining
the co'lege pharmacy.
Although Mrs. Grafstroa'a ssecialtr
is'china painting, she also is very pro
firient in water colors, and has
received crders from Chicago for her
work. She has installed a kiln in ths
studio for firing china, -and takes care
cf a large cl8 of pupils in this popu
lar branch of art.
Aside from being -well located, the
new studio is a pleasant one to enter.
Besides her own water colors fand
decorated china, tbe room is hung with
cil paintings by Prof. Grafstrom,
tastefully adorning the walls. Some
of these border on the 'cubist" variety,
over wiiirli 2Irs. Cxal&trom waxes elo
quent. A large blotch of paint here
is a tree, and another square piece O
eclor there is a stone.
Prof. Grafstrom has finished five
large altar paintings at his studio at
tbe college. Three of thfm have jus',
been sent to the Swedish Lutheran
church at Sacred Hear', Minn., Rev.
H. O. Hemming, pastor. Two of these
are copies of "Cnine I'n'.o Me" and
"The Ascencion" paiated by Prof.
Grafstrcm for Zion church, Kock Is
land. Th3 other one, "The Crucifix
ion, is a new. oricinai conception
worked out by the painter.
Another painting, "The Good Shep
herd," is going to the homo for the
aged at Joliet, 111., in charge cf Rev.
A. W. Stark. The painting will be in
stalled in the chape", of the home
Another largo painting entitled
"Christ in Gethsemane" has been
painted by Prof. Grfstrorn for exhi
bition during commencement week.
When he has completed the work now
on bis hands, he will pamt an altar
piece for Rev. A. J. Beausang's church
at Whitehall, Mich., the subject being
"The True Comforter."
