Kay, Elizabeth

1924-2015

Memories from Vivian Manthel-French

Lib, as she was known, was a founding member and long standing committee member of the Wellington Society of Watercolour Artists, now Watercolour New Zealand. As a committee member Lib was devoted to the society, hardworking, helpful and enthusiastic at all times. While I was president she was right behind all of our exciting adventures – our painting workshops, the Water/Clay Exhibition at the City Art Gallery, a National Exhibition at Antipodes to celebrate the first International Festival of the Arts and 100 years of Watercolours in Wellington, to commemorate our 10th birthday, held at the Michael Fowler Centre, to name a few.

All these grand designs meant a great deal of work for the committee; Lib was at the forefront. She was an outstanding artist. Painting in watercolour and acrylic. Creative, modern and innovative, she shared her skills and knowledge, taking classes at the Hutt Art Society, with which she was also closely associated. Painting was a lifelong passion, and her vibrant works will live on, giving pleasure in the years to come.
