Sheila Lewis & Friends Online Auction ends Sat.Nov 24 @5pm

FB auction Sheila Lewis & Friends Online Auction | Facebook

The LAG Society has been the fortunate beneficiary of many fine watercolours by Sheila Lewis, CSPWC (1920-2013). She was an elected member of the prestigious Canadian Society of Painters in Watercolours as well as the Founder of the South Shore Festival of the Arts.

From Ms Lewis’ own brochure: “Among the subjects Sheila chooses are shells, trees, rocks, boats, fish stores, rivers, and the sea. Her compositions convey subtleties of tone and colour, taking advantage of reflections and unexpected light, and using the effects of the Maritime climate and seasons – fog, rain, snow, and sunlight – to capture a deeper spirit.”

This work and a dozen pieces by other artists will all be available for sale. Auction weekend will be a festive time in Lunenburg, so encourage your friends to come to downtown Lunenburg to start/finish their Christmas shopping.
