"Fifty of the best [artists] have contributed canvases for a sale…[with the goal to support] a $150,000 art gallery. Each canvas is by a member of the California Art Club…the whole of the purchase price goes to the building fund." (S. Fred Hogue, Painters Seek Palace of Art, L. A. Times, December 28, 1922, p. I17)

Leighton, Jack Smith, Hanson Puthuff, Karl Yens, Val Costello, Clarence Hinkle, Dana Bartlett, Dell Meadows, Henri de Kruif, Edouard Vysekal, Mabel Alvarez, J.

A new gallery for small pictures and for friendly meetings of artists once a week will be opened on Jan. 20  in the Egan Little Theater Building. It will be called the Potboiler and will be conducted by Sigurd Russell. Despite its name, the Potboiler will house only sincere and geniune paintings.” – A. A. [Probably Antony Anderson.
