Sylvia Evelyn Ruth CURRY
By Jane COWAN Thursday, January 9, 2003, Page A18
Wife, volunteer, artist, mother. Born July 31, 1915, in Goderich, Ontario. Died October 3, 2002, in Toronto, from complications due to Alzheimer's disease, aged 87.
Sylvia (ne SALKELD) led a life like many women of her day. She was meant to marry, have children and maintain a warm and loving home. Yet, like so many other of these women, Sylvia had a need to do this and more.
Life began simply enough on the family farm outside of Goderich, Ontario Later there was the move into town, to a place across from the library. Even then there was this insatiable desire to learn and achieve. Sylvia was using the family car by the time she was 12 and had finished high school by 16.
It was time to move on and keep growing, so she found work in London, Ontario, at London Life. When war broke out, new opportunities appeared. London Life organized a show for the troops and Sylvia, being the outgoing person she was, took on the role of emcee for the tour.
From this there was a natural progression to joining the Navy. She was stationed in Quebec City, learning to chart ships along the Atlantic seaboard, where she met another young lieutenant named Bill who was stationed in Halifax. After a week of dating, they were married; this led to the post-war move to Bill's hometown of Windsor, Ontario, where they built the family home on Lincoln Road. They had children -- two boys and a girl. Life moved quickly for them.
Once the house was set up and the children were at school, Syl was eager to go out into the community. It started with her joining the May Court Club and then the Art Gallery of Windsor. Her list of commitments grew to include the Victorian Order of Nurses, the Christian Women's Association, the Children's Aid Society, the Anglican Synod and Heritage Windsor. Sylvia helped to set up programs in support of her community. She had found her niche.
Yet all these commitments became secondary when it came time for Bill. Sylvia always filled the home with flowers from the garden and made the surroundings comfortable so that it was an inviting sanctuary for Bill after a day of work. The children would be fed and doing their homework, and the fire was lit. All would be in place for Bill's arrival. Before the two of them ever sat down to dinner, there would always be time to unwind and discuss the day by the fire, with a drink.
Sylvia also made this home the centre for many social events: May 24th fireworks and Open House on New Year's Day would always be at the Curry's home and Syl's roasts of beef would be undoubtedly be on the table.
The children eventually went off to university and Sylvia added a newfound love to her list -- painting. At 60, Sylvia went back to school and studied fine art at the University of Windsor. Her works were shown in juried exhibits at the art gallery but for the most part her home became a gallery filled with her creations. Friends would buy art off the walls.
This all came to an end one morning when Bill had a massive heart attack. There was nothing that Syl could do for him and life was not the same without him.
In time, her work on committees started to decline and her art just never held her interest. We thought that it was simply that Bill was missing but it was really Alzheimer's disease taking its hold on her. In the end, it left nothing. Her mind and body had been ravaged and the journey along the way was painful.
But even to the end there was a mischievous twinkle in her eye to say that she was still somewhere in there -- the woman, the organizer, the painter, the person who took care of our every need, and the one Bill loved so much.
Jane COWAN is Sylvia's daughter

SALTMARCHE o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-07-19 published
He gave his city artistic merit
Windsor gallery's longtime director built a fine collection in his pursuit of 'communal pride'
By Bill GLADSTONE Special to The Globe and Mail Saturday, July 19, 2003 - Page F9
Canada's art world is lamenting the end of an era with the demise of Kenneth SALTMARCHE, founding director of the Art Gallery of Windsor, who died in Toronto on July 3 at the age of 82.
An accomplished artist, Mr. SALTMARCHE ultimately made his greatest mark as an arts administrator and is being remembered as one of the last of a dying generation of artists-turned-gallery directors who revitalized the art scene across the country.
Hired in 1946 to oversee operations of what was then the Willistead Art Gallery in Windsor, Ontario, he transformed the facility from a room on the second floor of the municipal library into a leading regional institution that possessed an astute collection of nearly 3,000 works by the time he retired in 1985.
"The gallery really had a very simple and rather primitive beginning, and he built it from absolute scratch, from zero," said Bill WITHROW, former longtime director of the Art Gallery of Ontario. "I was always impressed with that fact."
As a collector, Mr. SALTMARCHE is remembered for having "a good eye" and for acquiring many works by artists initially considered out of the mainstream, such as Harold Town and Prudence Heward. Over time his judgment was proved sound as a favoured artist's reputation would soar, along with the market value of his or her works.
He concentrated on attaining both historical and contemporary Canadian works, including numerous canvases of the Group of Seven, thus laying the foundation of the gallery's present collection of more than 5,000 pieces.
"He often collected against the current, which means you can make a dollar go a lot further," said David SILCOX, managing director of Sotheby's Canada. "He bought people when they weren't popular -- he was very intelligent that way."
Alf BOGUSKY, director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery, calls the collection Mr. SALTMARCHE assembled a "magnificent accomplishment" that reflects "the beautiful story of the development of Canadian painting, as represented by the earliest formal portraiture by British and French artists right through to the contemporary period of the Seventies."
Known for his energetic vision, Mr. SALTMARCHE had a knack for drumming up community involvement through innovative programs such as Art in the Park, now a long-established annual event in Windsor. Aided by his wife Judy, he made the gallery a vibrant centre of cultural life and charmed volunteers and patrons alike to new heights of involvement and philanthropy.
Aware of the advantages of being situated at Canada's southernmost border point, he cultivated friendly relations with the Detroit Institute of Arts, situated across the river and a few city blocks away, even sending over exhibitions of Canadian art. In the mid-1950s, he scored a major coup by persuading his U.S. counterparts that a key work languishing in their collection would have a much more appreciative home in Canada.
As a result, the Detroit Institute of Arts donated A Side Street Group of Seven stalwart Lawren Harris's celebrated 1919 painting of a snow-covered Toronto street -- to the Willistead gallery as a gift in commemoration of Windsor's 100th birthday. (Tom Thomson's 1914 painting Algonquin Park came into the gallery's possession in the same period.)
When nine previously unknown early 19th-century watercolours by early bureaucrat-painter George Heriot appeared on the market in 1967, Mr. SALTMARCHE was determined to acquire them despite their "distinctly Old Master price tag" exceeding $45,000. He quickly raised three-quarters of the sum from Windsor residents, then convinced the Canada Council into making an exceptional grant of $10,000 to complete the purchase.
Mr. SALTMARCHE saw collecting as "an art museum's primary function," and once wrote: "Communal pride -- whether civic or national in scale -- is engendered by the owning of works of art of outstanding value and is a completely natural reason for assembling a permanent collection."
He struggled with the library board for years to make the gallery an autonomous institution, and his eventual success was seen as a milestone by directors of other regional galleries. In the early 1970s, he moved the gallery into a historic renovated brewery building. It later ceded those premises to the province (for use as a casino) and moved into a prominent new downtown building in 2001.
Born September 29, 1920, in Cardiff, Wales, Kenneth Charles SALTMARCHE arrived in Windsor with his family at the age of four, and moved with them to the village of Vienna, south of London, Ontario, during the Depression. It was in Vienna's one-room schoolhouse that he encountered the travelling exhibition of Group of Seven reproductions that inspired him to dedicate his future to art. "He always told me that seeing that show was the pivotal point in his passion for art," said his son Noel.
A graduate of the Ontario College of Art, he began programming at the Willistead Art Gallery about 1946; he also began to write art and music criticism for the Windsor Daily Star and painting landscapes, still lifes and family portraits. In 1947, he married Judith DAVIES, and they had Nol and his twin brother David two years later. His family often joined him on painting expeditions around the world, some of which resulted in solo exhibitions of art.
He was a member of the Order of Canada and held an honorary law degree from the University of Windsor. As well, he was the founding president of the Ontario Association of Art Galleries and a founding member and past president of the Canadian Art Museum Directors Organization.
Soon after Judith died in 1992, he painted a series of watercolours "and that was the last work he did," Nol said. Afflicted with senile dementia, he spent his last years in several retirement homes and then a nursing home, Castleview Wychwood, in Toronto.
Predeceased by brothers Ronald and Leslie as well as his wife, Mr. SALTMARCHE leaves Nol and David, daughters-in-law Deb and Anita, and four grandchildren, all of Toronto.
