Art galleries in Halifax and beyond

The entire Halifax region is filled with art. From large scale galleries such as the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia to the small folk-galleries in Musquodobit Valley. There are so many art galleries waiting to be discovered and unveiled.

Maud Lewis Gallery at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia

Most people from the Maritimes know who Maud Lewis is, a famous folk-artist from Nova Scotia who had a fairly tragic life, yet painted the happiest paintings. Since the movie Maudie (featuring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke) was released earlier this year (2017) the Art Gallery has seen an influx of new visitors. Ride the momentum of the film to draw awareness to art, history and Nova Scotia.
