Black Sheep Gallery We are very pleased to add an original Maud Lewis painting of three black cats to our web site. The cats are sitting in a garden of tulips with apple blossoms swaying overhead. This lovely painting was purchased directly from Maud Lewis in the mid 1960s by the owner’s aunt, who related that the cats were often the subject of bedtime stories and each cat had a name and role in these stories.

We have also added a brightly coloured bird by Jean Marc Poirier and a pigeon-toed rooster by Merrill Stewart. Merrill’s roosters, fashioned of wood with metal tails cut from old bedsprings, are some of the most original to be found in eastern Canada.

If you have decided to visit Nova Scotia please don’t forget to stop in at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax. The Buoys and Gulls exhibition at the gallery has a selection of whimsical and sometimes humorous works from the gallery’s permanent collection that reflect this region’s cultural heritage and ties to the sea. In addition, the Folk/Funk exhibition looks at the connection between professional clay artists who use the medium to create social and political statements, and folk artists who enjoy clay for the same purposes. The gallery also has Maud Lewis’ fully restored house on permanent display, along with a selection of several of Maud’s best paintings.
