The “Maudified” house project has completed the first two stages: assembling 11 houses then getting them painted (16 artist have been hard at work for the past several weeks.)
Today, work crews installed two of the houses: Roy Mandell’s at the Mariners Centre and Margaret Knubben’s at the Visitor Centre. Following are some photos of the work accomplished today.
All of the houses will be in place by the time the ferry starts its daily run. We’re currently working on a brochure for a self guided tour, and planning a public launch on Saturday afternoon, May 24th.
June Deveau will be giving a special presentation at the AGNS in Yarmouth this Sunday at 2 p.m. as part of the popular Creative Minds Series. She’ll take us behind the scenes of her paintings as she discusses the inspiration that’s guided her for so many years. Namely, the rich cultural background that is rooted in the Acadian villages and landscapes along Baie Sainte-Marie, Nova Scotia, where she resides and works.
Mostly self-taught, June has also over the years studied with several well-known artists and has participated in various solo and group shows in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Québec and Louisiana. While she primarily paints with acrylics, she enjoys watercolours, drawing, monotypes, and linocuts. Colour, texture and form have always fascinated her. Her paintings reflect the beauty of her region, traditional arts, and values of the past. In 2003, June opened her gallery, June Deveau Galerie Studio, located in Saint-Alphonse, N.S., where she receives visitors from various parts of the world.
In addition to her personal artistry, and participation in various artistic projects within the schools, June teaches painting and sketching to residents of her community. She has also won numerous awards as a small-business owner. A selection of her artwork can be seen on her website, www.junedeveau.com.
June has recently launched “Inspiration to Creation,” a tourism experience that allows visitors to participate in an exploration of various art forms, the Acadian culture and local scenery, then push their boundaries through creating works of their own. Please join June for her presentation this coming Sunday. There is no admission charge.

Autism Arts is a new program being offered at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s Yarmouth branch. It is for young people diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. The 8-week sessions are modeled after a program developed at the AGNS through funding from the Craig Foundation, which have been offered in Halifax since 2006.
