Extended Label Info: Molly Lenhardt (1914-1995) grew up near Lake Winnipegosis, Manitoba. As a child, she was encouraged to paint by her father. She moved with her family to Melville, Saskatchewan and continued to paint while studying Business in Yorkton (1930). As an adult, she and her husband ran a variety store in Melville (Fairway Confectionary), and Lenhardt often painted at the back of the store when she had time. Her paintings have been exhibited across Canada and were the subject of a retrospective organized by the Dunlop Art Gallery (Regina, 1990). Her work can be found in the collections of the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the Canadian Museum of Civilization (Quebec), the Mendel Art Gallery (Saskatoon), the University of Saskatchewan, and the MacKenzie Art Gallery (Regina).
