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. In 2012, Painted Poetry: The Art of Mary Page Evans, will be the artist’s first solo exhibition at the Delaware Museum of Art.
