This exhibition showcases examples of Maud Lewis’ paintings from the Permanent Collection, returning the renowned folk artist’s work to the place of her birth, Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. From views of oxen teams working the fields to lighthouses standing watch along the rocky shores, Maud Lewis’ paintings reflect the spirit of rural Nova Scotia and a life inextricably bound to the land and sea.
