Bryan Rice will talk about col­lect­ing Maud Lewis paint­ings dur­ing a pre­sen­ta­tion at the Art Gal­ley of Nova Sco­tia in Yarmouth.

Col­lect­ing has been char­ac­ter­ized as a pas­sion, a fever, even an ad­dic­tion.

It is a cre­ative ven­ture that re­quires the cu­rios­ity of an artist and the sleuthing skills of a de­tec­tive. Come hear about Bryan Rice’s ad­ven­tures and en­coun­ters, tri­umphs and dis­ap­point­ments, as he chases down leads to build a per­sonal col­lec­tion of paint­ings, with a pri­mary fo­cus on works by Maud Lewis.

Visi­tors to the Art Gallery of Nova Sco­tia, at 341 Main St. in Yarmouth, are wel­come to bring along their own Maud paint­ings on Sun­day, May 27 and, although not an ap­praiser, Rice will be happy to of­fer opin­ions on the works.

This Cre­ative Minds pro­gram is in con­junc­tion with the John Ris­ley col­lec­tion of Maud Lewis, cur­rently on dis­play at the Art Gallery of Nova Sco­tia in Yarmouth.

There is reg­u­lar ad­mis­sion to the art gallery. Mem­bers are free.

Cre­ative Minds is sup­ported by the Friends of the Art Gallery of Nova Sco­tia Yarmouth. For more in­for­ma­tion call 902-749-2248 or email agn­syarmouth@no­vas­co­tia.ca.

Pho­tog­ra­phy fun with Adam Gra­ham on Sun­day, May 20 at the Art Gallery of Nova Sco­tia, 341 Main Street in Yarmouth.
