Black Sheep Gallery Welcome to our first update in 2018. We have had some very cold weather in Nova Scotia and in mid-December we attended the book launch for Ray Cronin’s new book “Our Maud - The Life, Art and Legacy of Maud Lewis” at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia on what felt like the coldest night of the year. It was well worth braving the cold weather because this is a wonderful book which, while telling the story of Maud’s life, also delves into aspects of Maud’s influence previously unexplored in print. While it traces her remarkable journey, it also describes in great detail the efforts of so many in saving her humble home, which had neither electricity or plumbing, and takes us through its ultimate restoration. Also discussed is her influence on the creation and evolution of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, where her restored house has found a permanent home. There it has become one of the most popular exhibits anywhere in the province. Filled with pictures of her work, and written in an easily readable style, this book will be appreciated and enjoyed by readers of all ages. Highly recommended! Copies are available on our publications page.

We have made several additions to our inventory including an Everett Lewis painting of Maud and her iconic oxen. We also have a lovely early harbour scene with a moose by Joe Norris. And finally we have a delightful angel by Cape Breton artist Imelda George, whose work is extremely difficult to find. Imelda developed an allergy to wood dust and has not done any carving for many years.
