Main Text
Probably nowhere in Canada is there a greater collection of sculpture in any one sculptor's studio than in the little church inhabited by Frances Loring. There is scarcely a nook or corner where some work of art, either completed or in process of completion, does not reside. As the trend in Canadian architecture is for architects to incorporate more bas relief designs and other forms of sculpture into their plans for new public buildings, Frances Loring faces a busy time in the years ahead. Above, she is working on a life size statue of an Eskimo mother and child.
