Diana Kemble



Artist, Librarian, Musician


Diana Kemble was a talented feminist artist and musician of wide-ranging interests, working with performance, collage, lithography, and painting. Solo and group exhibitions included at the Western Front, grunt gallery, and the Cultch. She was a graduate of Crofton House (1953), Monkey Club, London (1958), University of British Columbia (B.Mus, A.R.C.T. Piano), University of Toronto (M.LIS), and Emily Carr Institute (AFA). For 20 years, she worked as a reference librarian at West Vancouver Memorial Library, where her dedication and commitment influenced students and colleagues. Alongside her art, Kemble was committed to her family, home, and Buddhist practice. Her accepting, investigative curiosity about the inner landscape, the printed word, art, music, and nature continually enriched the lives of others.
