About This Experience

The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia welcomes visitors into the Maud Lewis Gallery, and the rest of the Gallery through virtual tours of its permanent exhibitions and spaces featuring works from the Permanent Collection.



Maud Lewis’ Painted House

In 1984, the Maud Lewis Painted House was sold to the Province of Nova Scotia and turned over to the care of Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.

In 1996, with funds from the federal Department of Canadian Heritage and from private individuals, the processes of conservation and restoration began. The final, fully restored house is on permanent display in Halifax at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
