Black Sheep Gallery We would like to share two great additions to the gallery this month. This joyful painting by Maud Lewis, with skies that are always blue and seagulls soaring over a peaceful harbour, takes us back to simpler times when rural people were dependent on oxen. Maud’s father was a harness maker and blacksmith so she shows the proper rigging along with an accurate depiction of a Nova Scotia style yoke in this painting. At 15.75” by 12” it is larger than most of Maud’s paintings.

“In her work we see Maud’s vision of Nova Scotia as she wanted to see it – romantic, nostalgic, joyful and exuberant, and, in the end, it was her truth she depicted.”   Ref: Ray Cronin, Our Maud - The Life, Art and Legacy of Maud Lewis (2017).

We also have a Bubby Mooers’ carving similar to, but smaller than the "hand-carved liquor cupboards" featured in the October, 2018 issue of Architectural Digest. It is wonderful to see Nova Scotian folk art incorporated into ultra chic New York interior designs.
