June 18, 2022 - October 30, 2022 Organized by McMichael Canadian Art Collection
One of Canada’s most beloved folk artists, Maud Lewis (1903—1970) was famous in her lifetime for her brightly coloured and endearing paintings of rural Nova Scotia. This show highlights Maud Lewis’s achievement, looking carefully at her serial repetition of images and motifs across her career. From her black cats and kittens, to her cart horses and oxen hauling logs, to her quayside scenes of ships in port and the Maritime landscape in all seasons, Maud Lewis made paintings that delight in their optimism and buoyant vitality.

Reverberations aims to bring fresh eyes and minds to reflect on works from AGGV’s permanent collection through an intergenerational, cross-disciplinary and cross cultural project. Artists, makers, and creators were invited to select works from our collection that they felt a resonance to and in turn share their own work bringing into conversation a diverse range of expressions.
