En Plein Air in the Gardens with artist Mary Page Evans
Monday, March 16, 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Rain date, March 17
“I am primarily a landscape painter. I work directly from nature – en plein air. I look at a specific landscape, establish its locale, the time of day, the quality of light, and paint it. Becoming involved with its particularities, I get to know it as if I were painting a figure or a still life. During the process, I am always creating and destroying until I arrive at the inevitability of this particular landscape”.
In 1984, artist Gene Davis described Mary Page Evans paintings as, “hymns of unadulterated joy.” While Evans paints still lifes and images of the human form, it is her landscape and garden paintings created directly from nature, en plein air that capture this sentiment. Evans exhibits in Virginia, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Washington, DC. She has artwork in numerous public and private collections such as: the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the Delaware Art Museum, and the State Museum of Pennsylvania.
