One of Canada’s most beloved folk artists, Maud Lewis (1903–1970) is known for her brightly-coloured paintings of rural Nova Scotia. Working from her cabin on the side of a highway, she produced hundreds of small works that captured the rapidly-changing aspects of country life. This exhibition will emphasize the aesthetics of Lewis' achievement, looking carefully at her serial repetition of images and motifs across her career, and the dizzying variety that she brings to the problem of picture making.
