Exhibition reviews

‘Sketch Exhibition’, Evening Post, 9 May 1924, pg 8, “Flora Scales has again (and welcome) some oil studies of horses, and her autumn landscape is a striking work of its kind.”

‘N.Z. Academy of Arts’, Nelson Evening Mail, 17 May 1924, pg 4, “It is indeed good to see such a representative collection of work from Miss Flora Scales once again, says the New Zealand Times in commenting on the sketch exhibition of the New Zealand Academy of Arts. The artist is represented by two animal studies, one of a dog and the other of her beloved horse sketches, and several landscapes. The standard is good, and generally the work is pleasing. First place must be awarded to the horse, which is a subject in which Miss Scales excels. The landscapes are all distinctive. No. 6, with its suggestion of the sea in the distance, and a roller breaking on the beach, is probably the best. “Autumn” is a subdued impression with a nice appreciation of light. Each and every one is a welcome contribution.”
