I MRS. VYE-PARMINTER'S I PUPILS. I An Exhibition of Their Works at Exeter Villa. The pupils of Mrs. C. Vye-Paraunter, a lady who can claim the distinction of having trained nearly all the best known local artists, held an exhibition of their pictures at tho studio ia which they receive instruction, Exeter Villa, Uplands, Swansea, on Thursday afternoon, when there was a large and fashionable assembly, in- cludingljady Swansea, the Hons. Averil, Alberta, and Alexandra Vivian, his Worship the Mayor (Councillor H. Watkins), Mrs. Watlrins, Miss Watkias, and Miss Effie Watkins, Mrs. Ben Evans, Mrs. T. P. Richards, Mrs. Ivor Evans, Mr. and Mrs. P. Rogers and Misa Rogers, Miss Livingston, Mrs. and the Misses Leyson, Mrs. Austin Williams, Mrs. E. R Daniel, Mrs. J. White, Mrs. B. H. and Miss Morgan; Mrs. R. and the Misses Nash; Mrs. G. Shad- dick, Mrs. F. Bradford, Mrs. and the Misses Leaver Mrs. T. P. and Miss Martin, the Misses Watkins, Mrs. and Miss Gaydon, Mrs. Cleeves, Mrs. T. W. and Miss Jones, Mrs. and Miss J. S. Merry, Miss Isaac, Mr. J. Hall, and Mrs. and the Misses Jenkin Jones. The walls of the studio which had been prettily draped, wei e covered with the works of the pupils, each picture having in it much that wasmeritoireua, and each speak- ing, apart from the painter's cleverness, of the ability of the instructress. Here and there, indeed, were some so exceedingly well done that one could hardly believe they were not wrought by the hand of a master and not a pupilâsome of the flower studies in parti- cular. Then there were landscapes and sea- scapes, including local views from the brushes of the Hon. Alberta and Alexandra Vivian; flower studies and studies of fruit, portraits and studies from life, every one of them, as has already been said, containing sufficient merit to arrest and hold the attention of the viewers. One picture is deserving of special mention, inasmuch as it was painted by Miss Jaaie M. WTiliiams for Lady Swansea's acceptance. It was a beautifully-exeeuted view of her ladyship's Swansea home, Singleton Abbey. Miss Williams was introduced to her ladyship, who expressed her delight at the gift, and gracefully thanked the g i ver. Lady Swansea, in opening the exhibition, said it seemed to her that the pictures all around bore excellent testimony to the energetic and efficient instruction of Mrs. Parminter. For her own part, she was very much obliged to her for the interest she had taken in her (Lady Swansea's) daughter and their art education. They would all agree that a great amount of pleasure was added to life by being able to study the beauties of nature, and to have the attrac- tions of everything enhanced by a knowledge of art. Anyone who had an intetest in painting was all the more able to appi-eciate the beauties of the surrounding scenery, iind to see tints and shades in things, which to other eyes Were invisible. Mrs. Parminter deserved a great deal of thanks for imparting to their children a knowledge and love of the things of nature, through which they could look up to nature's God. She had great pleasure in declaring the exhibition open, and wished Mrs. Parminter every success. Mrs. Parminter thanked Lady Swansea for her kin:l words, and expressed her regret that there was a likelihood of their losing lwr and her charming family. The Mayer also speke of the pleasure it gave him to be present, and went on to say that there was one note of sadness in connection with Lady Swansea and her family xow--the probability that they were te lose them. They were all very sorry to know that there was a likelihood of her ladyship going away, and could only hope that she would pay a fiequent visit to Singleton. She would, he lelt sure, be meet heartily welcomed. The company then proceeded to; view the pictures.
