“Appreciating the art of Maud Lewis” with Alan Deacon
Expert on Maud Lewis coming to Yarmouth
Maud Lewis expert Alan Deacon will be giving a special talk titled “Appreciating the art of Maud Lewis” at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth in the Community Room. Deacon not only has the largest private Maud Lewis collection in Canada (spans three decades of her work), he also authenticates her paintings for all the major Canadian art auction houses. In 2011 and 2013 Deacon gave a talk at the Mayberry Gallery in Toronto for their two successful Maud Lewis exhibitions. He says, “It’s rather like being a detective! Authentic Mauds always have certain nuances in the work. I think that’s how I became an authority–by studying and looking at them closely.” This talk is sure to be informative and entertaining! Everyone is invited!
Alan Deacon, would be willing to see any Maud Lewis paintings people care to bring along. He is willing to offer a verbal authentication and appraisal of Maud Lewis items.
