Maud Lewis:Finding the Magic in Her Story and in Her Art (2017 Montreal)

Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, NS

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia will present an introduction to the art of local folk artist Maud Lewis. It will also tell the story of the saving and restoration of her house, now a central exhibit at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. It will combine images and narrative, both to explore Maud's life and art and to demonstrate a range of techniques for engaging school children with Maud's work. While Maud's story is unique, many of the tour techniques would easily transfer to the work of other folk artists.

Presenters: Katharine Bowlby, Ph.D., Kay McNamara and Cheryl Greenberg, Ph.D.
