Administrative history

The Fine Arts Five was an “eclectic groups of award winning artists” that resided and exhibited their work in Mission, British Columbia. The five primary members were Doris J. Patterson, Dorothy St. Hilaire, June Pender, Malonie Kasian, and Ruth Adams Booth. Each specialized in a different art medium and they joined together to form the Fine Arts Five in 1992.

Ruth Pender was born in England and is a graduate of the London Art School. Her preferred medium is oils and her area of focus is the B.C. landscape, particularly the coastal areas and the Gulf Islands. Ruth Adams Booth received her artistic education at the University of Washington, in Seattle. Her technique is the colagraph to create images in texture and color. Dorothy St. Hilaire was born and raised in B.C.. She started painting as a watercolorist, but also paints mixed media paintings specializing in the landscape of the province. Malonie Kasian studied at the University College of the Fraser Valley and at the National Academy of Design in New York City. Her preferred media is watercolor. Doris J. Patterson was born and raised in England and trained in Canada. Her chosen media is acrylic and collage as well as oil on canvas.

The artists held eight annual exhibitions of their work from 1993-2000 and invited local guest artists to participate in the exhibitions. As a result of the group's efforts many Mission artists received exposure and recognition for their work. The group disbanded in 2000 due to new interests and influences in the lives of the artists, taking them in a new direction.
