Come spend an Afternoon with Minnie Evans this Sunday October 3, 2010 @2pm at the Wrightsville Beach Museum.

Wrightsville Beach Museum

 

Minnie Evans (1892 ~ 1987) was a much beloved local Wilmington, NC artist.  She began drawing in 1935 while in the employ of the Pembroke & Sarah Jones family.  She said that God had come to her in a dream and told her to draw so that she could live.  She had no formal training and did much of herMinnie Evans Work work in colored wax crayons.  While working at Airlie Gardens as a Gate Attendant she began selling her art to supplement her income.  Her first formal exhibition, in 1961,  was at a gallery in Wilmington, NC,  leading to a major Evans exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art in 1975. 

You will have the opportunity to view works by Minnie Evans from private collections and Dr. Christian Daniel, author of The Art of Minnie Evans,  will be there to speak and sign copies of his book. 

The Wrightsville Beach Museum is located at 303 W. Salisbury Street  Wrightsville Beach, NC  28480.

Tish, just wish I could pop over for this excursion into the art. What a great story. I would so love to see some of her work. Amazing! The Artist's mind and their work is so amazing. The story behind is always equally as interesting. Great posts!

Jeanean ~ Really looking forward to seeing more of her work this afternoon!  I find her story to  be especially interesting; guess it's just so personal being able to connect her to the local areas.
