Exhibition Opening | Maud Lewis and Byron Samson (Mistikonapew): Place of Honour

 You’re invited! Join us for an exciting evening as we honour the works of Maud Lewis and Byron Samson at our Exhibition Opening Event! 

There is a special Members' Preview at 6pm with opening remarks at 6:20pm. The event is open to both Members and non-Members starting at 7:30pm.  

Registration is free, access to all galleries is included, and there will be a cash bar to enjoy!  

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. Working from her cabin on the side of the highway in Marshalltown, in Digby County, she produced hundreds of small works that captured aspects of country life that were rapidly changing. Maud Lewis is made possible through loans from leading Nova Scotian private collections and features many works never before seen in public museums. This exhibition was organized and circulated by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.

Byron Samson (Mistikonapew): Place of Honour is a body of work featuring several Treaty 6 leaders who we acknowledge by giving them a place of honour in our communities and in our hearts.  This exhibition is generously sponsored by RBC Foundation as part of the RBC New Works Gallery which features new artworks by Alberta artists.
