An Afternoon with Minnie Evans in Wrightsville Beach, NC October 3, 2010 @2PM

By
Real Estate Agent with BlueCoast Realty Corporation

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.

Joni ~ We are so fortunate to have so much culture here at the ocean!

Oooh, I wish I could attend.  I love her colors and the wax crayon work is amazing.  I think it is so cool that she got to enjoy some of her own fame.  If she only knew now....

Thanks for the great localism post.  You go, girl!

This sounds like a fun event!!  Wish I was closer.  By the way, I was a legal assistant before I entered the real estate field also.  I think it is a great asset that we have ;-)

Suzanne ~ Someone else who knows her work!  Her life is so intertwined with Wrightsville Beach, it's really quite interesting.

Mel ~ Somehow it just seems appropriate to attend and pay homage to her. 

You know, I do think the legal background helps quite a bit -- certainly keeps us on our toes, anyway!

Melissa ~ Was looking for my Fayetteville Fix all day!!!  What a wonderful age -- 4 years old; all that innocence, wonderment and cuddling.  What's not to love!  Nice to steal those special moments, regardless of the time.  Think we talked about this -- I'm a Mimi, too.  Turns me to mush every time I hear my "name" called.

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!
