Black Sheep Gallery Only ten days until spring!!!

We can already imagine watching the wild ducks swim on the lake beside Leo Naugler’s camp near Camperdown, Nova Scotia. But for now we have to satisfy ourselves enjoying his painting of the scene, as well as Donald Boudreau’s adorable carving of a spotted dog. We also have three men by prominent Quebec folk artist Felicien Levesque. Felicien decorated his yard with whirly-gigs every summer and occasionally sold his work to a lucky passerby if Mrs. Levesque approved.

And finally we would like to offer a lady in red top and man in black suit by highly regarded U.S. outsider artist George Williams.

Maud Lewis paintings continue to attract national and international attention, and we are looking forward to the exhibition of her work at the McMichael Gallery in Kleinburg, Ontario this summer. This show will be concurrent with two leading exhibitions of art from the Arctic region— drawings by Cape Dorset artist Itee Pootoogook and documentary photographs of the DEW line by Louie Palu.

A new limited edition stamp in honour of Maud Lewis was recently unveiled at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia by the local division of the Arthritis Society. Susan Tilley-Russell, executive director for the society’s Atlantic region said in an interview “The idea came about because Maud Lewis of course had arthritis and she had juvenile arthritis as a young girl. We wanted to do something to honour Maud and we were trying to think of all the ways that we could do it and we thought a stamp might be an interesting way. She loved animals, she loved cats especially, so we thought putting a cat on the stamp might be a wonderful way to share Maud’s love of animals and be something that everybody could enjoy.” The stamp will be available for purchase at the Arthritis Society’s Halifax office and at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia while supplies last.
