Lucy Jarvis: Even Stones Have Life
In 1941, Jarvis co-founded the UNB Art Centre with Pegi Nicol MacLeod, and together they turned it into a place of creative effervescence.
In the 1960s, she left the art centre and headed for Paris and immersed herself in Parisian life. However, she retreated to Pembroke Dyke near Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, during the summer months.
The influences of both impressionism and post-impressionism emerged in her work, and her paintings became more boldly colourful, freer — more completely her own.
Lucy Jarvis: Even Stones Have Life is the first examination of Jarvis’ considerable body of work — what she painted, how she rendered it, and how her art permeated her life and vice versa.
