Artists’ Talk: Maintaining Maud’s Captivity

February 20 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

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.

*Snow date for this talk is March 6. *
