stu­dents the paint­ing so they would know about their own com­mu­nity and their in­ter­est in lo­cat­ing the ac­tual lo­ca­tion in the paint­ing peaked.

The stu­dents are paint­ing their own houses us­ing pal­let paint­ing — a thick type of paint­ing us­ing knives — the style used by the Group of Seven.

Lewis con­tacted the Art Gallery of Nova Sco­tia be­liev­ing they might have a record of his visit to the prov­ince. She also con­tacted the On­tario Art Gallery which owns the orig­i­nal paint­ing and the McMichael Art Gallery in On­tario which spe­cial­ize in Cana­dian art and col­lects pieces from the Group of Seven. So far she hasn’t solved the mys­tery.

Laura Schiener, di­rec­tor of the Cape Bre­ton Uni­ver­sity Art Gallery, has in­vited the stu­dents to visit the gallery to­day.

“ They have Group of Seven paint­ings in stor­age and she will get them out to show them,” said Lewis.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the paint­ing can con­tact Lewis by tele­phon­ing, 562-4032 or email­ing, di­anelewis@ syd. eastlink.ca.
