E. Mortimer Standing, who conducted the highly successful Montessori Institute on the Seat- tle University campus this sum- mar, and Donald Demarest, ed- itor of the Academy Guild Press at Fresno, Calif., were greally impressed with the efficient or- ganization and high quality of the Liturgical Art exhibition. "Catholic art is becoming more acceptable to the public due to laymen who are willing to give of their talents, as well as religious who are more free to work along less traditional lines," said Mr. Demarest. Mr. Standing, who worked with Dr. Montessori for 30 years, and has written several books con- cerning her life and her method of education, is visiting Seattle from his home in Ireland. Be- cause Dr. Montessori's method is based on the building up of knowledge through the help of the senses of the child, it was almost possible to predict which art piece he would admire the most. "The Assumption," by Pat Griffin, pleased his eye because of the wonderf, d use of the nat- ural wood, he said. Val Laig0's "Mother of Sorrow" was also admired by him. Author of "Dark Virgin--0ur Lady of Guadalupe," Mr. Demur- est was thrilled by Sister Ber- nard of Jesus' carving of "Our Lady of Guadalupe." Perhaps the Montessori-tie was strong here because*Sister Bernard was also an instructor at the Montessori Institute and Mr. Demarest not only reads about Montessori, but helped to establish a Montessori school in Fresno. .L .hrlstpller's ]orhho p IbHONE tllilV (i-';'O21 tERRY, RUTH a ROBERT CARFICO RURAl.
