Maud Lewis is one of Canada’s most renowned folk artists, one whose story and paintings delight thousands of visitors in Nova Scotia every year. At the heart of the Maud Lewis collection at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, is her Painted House.
Maud experimentally embellished almost every surface in her tiny home, formerly located in Marshalltown, Nova Scotia, creating an iconic artwork that was nearly lost. Extensive conservation continues to be vital in treating her paintings, the adorned objects inside her home, and every element of the house itself. Join conservators Craig Dix, Jennifer Fotheringham, and Michelle Gallinger as they discuss their contributions to the preservation of Maud Lewis’s art and legacy.
The presentation will be moderated by Shannon Parker, Laufer Curator of Collections, and will be followed by a Q&A session.
In partnership with the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
