Artist’s Talk: Maintaining Maud’s Captivity
Wednesday February 20, 2019  1pm - 2:30pm (1 Hour 30 Minutes)
Lecture / Seminar Wheelchair Accessible

Rug Hooker Laura Kenney and painter Steven Rhude have been exploring the broader and more important social issues that pertain to the life of Maud and Everett Lewis. Their work has been met with both great public appreciation, and conversely, institutional dismay as they continue to probe issues through their work that are not concurrent with the standard image crafted to date by the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the recent film “Maudie”, and standard media coverage.

Each artist, using a selection of recent work, will discuss their experience with the legacy of Maud and Everett Lewis, the social conditions of their times, and the barriers they have experienced in drawing attention to this important chapter in Nova Scotia’s cultural history.
Registration is required.
*Snow date for this talk is March 6. *

AVRL recognizes the support of the Province of Nova Scotia. We are pleased to work in partnership with the Department of Communities, Culture and Heritage to develop and promote our cultural resources for all Nova Scotians.
