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 are welcome to bring along their own Mauds and, although not an appraiser, Bryan would be happy to offer opinions on the works.
This program is in conjunction with the John Risley collection of Maud Lewis, currently on display at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, located at 341 Main Street, Yarmouth. Regular admission. Members free. Creative Minds is supported by the Friends of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Yarmouth. For more information, please call (902) 749-2248 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
