San Francisco

Betty Guy, Designer Craftsmen Exhibit

Horse’s Mouth, Saratoga

Betty Guy’s sepia drawings are of historical sites in San Francisco, done in a professional style most commonly found in books and magazines. They seem to have very few concerns for an artist’s way of approaching subjects. Miss Guy’s total lack of feeling for subject matter is less evident in her watercolors. She seems to have an appreciation of colors, if not of what she is painting.

Win Ng’s exquisite pots are the best things in the crafts show, although there are several pieces that nicely avoid being “acceptable” to the market by presenting a sustained scheme of values. Several sculptors have cast bottles, cups and pots. The most successful of these is Daryl Webb; he is also the most successful sculptor.
