Did you know Maud Lewis was born near the Town of Yarmouth? Did you know her paintings fetch tens of thousands at auction? Maybe you’ve seen the movie Maudie about her life? It features Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. Well, you can view some of her famous works at the Art Gallery Of Nova Scotia in Yarmouth.
In 2006, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia opened its satellite branch in Yarmouth, the first of its kind in Canada. The establishment of their Western Branch in Yarmouth helps fulfill the Gallery’s mandate of making art more accessible across the province, and engaging people with art.
