Black Sheep Gallery We have just a few pieces to add to our web site this month. Patricia Promaine lived on a farm near Waterloo, Ontario. Her paintings “Quilts For Sale” and “The Gardener” are filled with images reminiscent of the busy idyllic farm life of her Mennonite neighbours. We have added a delightful carving of a sea captain with a bright yellow sou’ wester, pipe and spyglass by well known Nova Scotia folk artist Bubby Mooers. We invite you to take a minute to watch the video of Bubby recalling the story surrounding the creation of his work “Penelope and the Poodle” which is now in the permanent collection of Canada’s Museum of History. And finally we have added “Balloon Man” by Cape Breton carver Murray Gallant. The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia recently added a carousel by Murray to its permanent collection, making it the sixteenth piece by Murray in the gallery’s collection. You can find an article about Murray in the Cape Breton Post at this link.

Exciting news on the Maud Lewis front – Maudie the movie will be released in theatres in Canada on April 14th. An original Maud Lewis painting was recently discovered in a thrift shop in New Hamburg, Ontario. The painting will be auctioned off online after a special screening of the movie at the Princess Cinema in Waterloo, Ontario, on April 20th, with all proceeds to benefit the Mennonite Central Committee. For a delightful story about the discovery read the article by Scott Miller Cressman of the New Hamburg Independent.
