Gillen, Denver (1914- )
wildlife - Jenifer Gillen Cohn: "I wish I could tell you I had memories of the outline of Denver's early life. Although he talked about his career as an illustrator, I remember most his ability to tell a good story and I loved to hear him talk about his childhood and his early days as an artist. The "facts" that I relate to you, however, come from a wonderful article about Denver Gillen written by Norman Kent in the November 1956 issue of American Artist….. He had been hospitalized at age seventeen with a prolonged illness that made it impossible for him to have children. But, his time in the hospital changed the direction of his life…. It was while in the hospital that he was encouraged to pass the time by drawing, by his doctor who was an amateur artist. Pop had been raised in a seafaring family in Vancouver, BC and would have probably followed his father and brothers into some related form of work. By the time he left the hospital, however, he knew he wanted to become a commercial artist. According to that article, "his doctor arranged a meeting with the manager of the art department of the Hudson Bay Company and there Gillen stayed for three years, learning the basic techniques of commercial studio." During that time, he met Edward Varley{Jaleen's note: prob Fred Varley} and studied with him. Then, Denver moved to Toronto in 1935 and worked for a year in the Brigden Studios. When commercial artists went on strike, he moved to Chicago. He worked for Montgomery Ward for four years as a staff artist, where he did the original illustrations for "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer", their gift to their customers. He then worked for another six years in Chicago in a "variety of studio affiliations" Also pioneered illo for Reader's Digest. [source: Leif Peng]

Gillespie, Gordon F.
Gordon F. Gillespie may have been a staff artist for the Canadian Pacific Railway Company. He supplied the artwork for at least 7 postcards published by them showing their hotels and fleet of steamers between 1920 and 1946. Three paintings of Gordon Gillespie are reproduced in the Canadian Geographical Journal (February, March and May, 1931) courtesy of Canadian Pacific Railway Company.

Gillett, Violet Amy (1898-1996)
Born Liverpool, England, 1898; Died Perth-Andover, New Brunswick, 1996
Violet Amy Gillett came to Canada with her family in 1908. She entered the Ontario College of Art in Toronto, and funded part of her degree with a scholarship, as well as a commission to paint pathological specimens for the Medical Department of the University of Toronto. She also did illustrations for Doctors Banting and Best at the time of their discovery of insulin. Gillett graduated from the Ontario College of Art and was given a teaching position at the Toronto Central Technical School. In 1926 she received an invitation from the Saint John Vocational School in New Brunswick to take charge of its Art Department. Two years later, she went to the School of Design at the Royal College of Art in London. She held an exhibition at this school, and was granted her Associateship degree (A.R.C.A.) a year early because of her advanced knowledge. Upon her return to Saint John Vocational School she was appointed the Principal of the Department of Fine and Applied Art. She held this position until her retirement in 1948. Gillett was also active in the Maritime Art Association, helping both in its formation, acting as secretary for nine years, president in 1946, as well as starting its slide collection of Maritime Artists. She later opened a ceramics shop in Andover with her sister, which became very popular, supplying ceramics to shops all over Canada. Gillett went back to teaching when the shop closed, and completed four murals in the Trinity Anglican Church in Andover. She also wrote two books, "Where the Wild Flowers Grow" and "In the Fields and Woods", complete with her own illustrations. She has received the New Brunswick Teacher's Centennial Award (1976), the Queen's Jubilee Medal (1977), and the Governor General's Medal (1977). [source - Cdn Women Artists' History Initiative]

He took part in organizing the Art League of Hamilton which eventually became part of the Hamilton Art School. In 1909 he became Principal of the Hamilton Art School and in1923 was named Director of the School of Fine and Applied Arts after the amalgamation of the art school with the technical school.

Grassick, Bert (1909- 1998) Born Charles Albert Grassick in Victoria, B.C. and soon moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba where he grew up with his three brothers. Upon the death of his father at age 13 he was forced to quit school and go to work to help support the family. In spite of numerous cartooning awards from the Winnipeg Tribune for his submissions it was felt that he should provide for the family while his older brother was sent to art school. Due to years of noisy factory work he became hearing impaired in both ears causing him to become isolated, quiet and reserved. At the age of 20 (1929) he hopped a freight train to Toronto to seek his fortune and was hired on first at Rabjohn Enterprises, then at Clement Saila & Co. as an illustrator. By the beginning of the 1950's his recognition gained him a position as the daily political cartoonist for the Toronto Telegram where he remained throughout the decade (1959). He had a short foray into the new frontier of television as the caricaturist for a game show on CBC entitled "Whozit" where a guest panel was given verbal clues while he sketched visual ones until someone guessed the right answer. However it was short lived and not to his introverted liking. His often award winning cartoons garnered attention from many sources including that of Mayor Nathan Phillips. He then proceeded to join the Disney team at Canaline (again with Clem Saila) where he remained until the age of 73. He also freelanced cartoons regularly for MacLean's Magazine and several other publications throughout his career and taught cartooning at the Ontario College of Art. Bert Grassick died in 1998 at the age of 89. (source: Roxanne Grassick - daughter)

They dedicated their lives to art, producing a large collection of work in oils, watercolour, pen and ink, etchings and wood cuts.. Their work is representational, impressionist covering a very broad range of subjects and areas of interest, from Ken's pen and ink drawings of heritage buildings in Toronto, done when many of these buildings faced destruction, to Marie's delicate watercolours of landscape, animal studies, or life size figure studies in oil.

"He studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and became a published magazine illustrator and a political cartoonist before he was 20. Then, having been rejected for military service in the Second World War, he turned his energy in partnership with David Simkin to the founding of Contemporary Publishers, which issued a number of paperbacks on social subjects. His skill in the graphic arts and his talent for management led in 1948 to the founding of the advertising art and photography firm of Phillips-Gutkin and Associates, in partnership with John Phillips. This intensely creative young company won a number of awards, serving both national and international clients; among these, Canada Post commissioned a stamp honouring Lord Selkirks Red River Settlement. Four years later, PGA Films came into being. With the cooperative movement one of its chief clients, several documentaries written and directed by Harry Gutkin dramatized the social significance of the movement. Television exploded on the scene shortly after, and PGA Films moved into animation, to produce some of the commercials the new industry demanded, again under his tireless direction. The firm is now recognized as one of the pioneers of animation in Canada.[and he became extremely active in the Jewish community].
