From October 2 to January 11, 2015, The Beaverbrook Art Gallery will be presenting Lucy Jarvis Even Stones Have Life. Jarvis died in 1985 and didn’t begin to blossom until late in life after she stepped down in 1960 from the University of New Brunswick Art Centre which she cofounded. Then she began to take extensive trips to France and liberated her art from the strictures she had learned as a student at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
Her work is impressionistic and postimpressionistic and brings light into vision. It deserves a wider audience.
