Maud Lewis Gallery Tour: An Afternoon with Maudie

Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

Maud  Lewis  was  a  famous  Nova Scotia folk  artist  who  exemplified  resilience  by  creating  brightly  colored  art  work  full  of  optimism  and  joy  in  spite  of  serious  life  hardships  including  severe  rheumatoid  arthritis  that  limited  the  size  of  the  canvases  she  could  paint.  Her  actual  home  was  8  ft  by  10.8  ft  and  painted  with  folk  art  all  over it.  Her  house  was  later transported  whole  to  the  Nova Scotia  Art  Gallery  where  it  is  now on  exhibit.
