Black Sheep Gallery Happy New Year everyone!!! Just sending out a quick note to welcome in the new year and send along a review by Ray Cronin of the Maud Lewis exhibition continuing at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia until April 2023. We also have received notice of a draw for a Maud Lewis painting at the Scotia Festival of Music.

As you may recall from last month’s newsletter, we were extremely impressed with the work that had gone into the Maud Lewis exhibition which is completing its tour of Canada at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. We recently read a review written by Ray Cronin, the founding curator of the Sobey Art Award, and the former Director and CEO of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. He describes the exhibition as an opportunity to see Maud Lewis with fresh eyes, as an artist rather than as an icon. You can read his review at Maud Lewis: Creative Resilience | Art Gallery of Nova Scotia. For those in the area, you have until April to attend this impressive exhibition.

Scotia Festival of Music in Halifax is having a draw for a Maud Lewis painting on February 23rd, 2023. Titled “ Doe and Fawn in Winter”, this original painting by Maud has been appraised at $60,000. Scotia Festival of Music is a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing the best of live classical and chamber music to Halifax and Nova Scotia audiences and giving educational opportunities to the next generation of classical musicians. Unfortunately, tickets are only available to residents of Nova Scotia and only 1215 tickets will be sold. You can purchase tickets at Scotia Festival Draw 1215 | You Could Win A Maud Lewis Painting

And finally, we are sharing a flock of recently acquired birds by Stanley Rector (1943 – 2020) that just arrived at the gallery. According to myths, seeing a flock of birds is a sign that our goals will be achieved, and it brings good fortune, even more so if one of them poops on your head.

Stay safe everyone.
