Painted Poetry: The Art of Mary Page Evans
Over the past 100 years, the Delaware Art Museum has proudly featured the work of the most accomplished artists in our region. Wilmington-based painter Mary Page Evans works directly from nature, seeking to capture a specific landscape, figure, tree, or sky. She is engaged by particularity, making an effort to establish the locale, the time of day, and the quality of light. Not surprisingly, her influences include the French impressionists and post-impressionists, as well as the abstract expressionist Joan Mitchell. Evans has worked at Claude Monet's garden in Giverny and names CÚzanne as an inspiration. The painter Gene Davis described her paintings as "hymns of unadulterated joy," and this exhibition promises to be a gorgeous celebration of nature and the human form, as well as a retrospective covering more than 40 years of the painter's distinguished career.
Hours: On view during regular hours.
Admission: Included with general admission. Free on Sundays.
