February 7, 2014 Launch Maudify House project

The Friends of the AGNS Western Branch Society will be launching its
Maudify House project on at the gallery on Friday, Feb. 7th at 6 p.m. at
the gallery.
maud houseThis is an exciting project involving numerous artists from the region
who are painting 10 houses (4 ft. x 8 ft. structures) in a “Maudified” fashion. The project will draw attention to the fact that famed folk artist Maud Lewis was born in South Ohio, and later moved to Hawthorne Street in Yarmouth where she lived until she was 34 years of age.

The houses have been sponsored by individuals, corporations, businesses, and the Town of Yarmouth. After they are painted, they will be installed in
prominent locations to coincide with the arrival of the Nova Star cruise
ferry in Yarmouth. A brochure will be available at various locations
throughout the town and county promoting a self-guided walking tour to
find the Maud Houses. As well, Maud Lewis inspired programs and exhibits
will take place at the AGNS Western Branch in Yarmouth.

The public is invited to attend the launch, meet the sponsors, artists,
and volunteers who are making this project possible.
