Scope and content
This series consists of incoming and outgoing correspondence of the Victoria Limners Society from 1972 to 2008, excluding the years 1982-1983 which appear to be missing. The records relate to group exhibitions; memberships; the video about the Limners produced by Agustin Luviano-Cordero; and the book about the Limners entitled A Passion for Art: The Art and Dynamics of the Limners written by Patricia Bovey. There are also a number of meeting minutes on the same subjects interspersed in this series.
The exhibition correspondence relates to the arrangement, promotion and carrying out of various Limner shows, including the Limners’ 25th anniversary exhibition in 1996. It contains correspondence with various art galleries, financial records, shipping lists, invitations, and some marketing materials (e.g. information on individual Limner artists, press releases and some press clippings). There are also nine photographs from the Limner exhibition that travelled on the Atlantic Provinces Art Circuit in 1975 from Confederation Art Gallery in Charlottetown, PEI, to Universite de Moncton, New Brunswick Museum, Memorial University Art Gallery, and the University of New Brunswick Art Centre.
The membership correspondence relates to the arrangement of society meetings, briefings on members’ activities, incoming and outgoing members, including one color photograph and curriculum vitae of Jack Wilkinson upon his acceptance into the Limners.
Correspondence also relates to a video about the Limners which was produced by Agustin Luviano-Cordero. In particular, the letters relate to the production, marketing and airing of this video, and includes a post production contract and copyright agreements signed by individual Limner members.
Correspondents include individual Limner members, especially Sylvia Skelton, who acted as secretary for the Limners for several years, as well as the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, Winchester Gallery in Victoria, Agustin Luviano-Cordero, Patricia Bovey, Confederation Centre for the Arts (Charlottetown, PEI) and several others.
