MAUD LEWIS

CANADIAN FOLK ARTIST

Canada’s most beloved folk artist, Maud Lewis (1903–1970), has captured the hearts of many with her dazzling depictions of rural Nova Scotia. Her paintings describe a way of life in the Maritimes that was rapidly changing, as the horse and buggy gave way to the automobileand small-scale net fishing was overtaken by industrial fisheries. Her works are thus both documentary and deeply nostalgic.


Exhibition runs through April 28.
