Little House Museum & Gallery is organizing a spring exhibit entitled, “Garden Visions: Minnie Evans and Nature Inspirations” that will run March 23-May 24, 2018. The focus of this exhibit is the role nature plays in art and history, using the example of historic gardens and artist Minnie Evans, ceramic and enamel art works, and the museum garden.
 
LOCAL ART:
We’d really interested in featuring local artwork that pairs well with the “nature” theme. As there is a relatively intimate environment, smaller artworks, jewelry, vessels, sculpture, etc. work best in this small gallery setting.
 
Examples of work that might pair well with the next exhibit include:
-ornately painted or nature-themed ceramic
-works that feature enamel on copper, silver or other metal – jewelry, boxes, vessels, etc.
-works that feature natural forms in the abstract – paint, watercolor, pastel, etc.
-works in rainbow colors (Evans felt heaven was not white, but rainbow colors)
-art that features symmetrical forms similar to the eastern Meiji or Iznik works
-works inspired by mystical dreams, angels, creatures, flowers
 
EXHIBIT DESCRIPTION
 
MUSEUM COLLECTION / ART
We’ll be showing (not for sale) six original works by Evans, mixed media including crayon, pastel and watercolor, dated 1943-1979. We will have some additional paintings depicting Airlie Gardens. Almost all her works feature entertwining, natural forms. Her works are often highly colorful, sometimes mystical (based on dreams with angels and unusual creatures), may be very symmetrical in form, and many feel an eastern (persian, oriental) influence in her work well. Her life and vision were also influenced by ancestral roots in Trinidad.
 
For years, Evans and her family worked in and around the gardens at Wilmington’s Pembroke Park and Airlie, two “plantations” that comprised thousands of acres, owned by the Jones-Walters family, who placed among our nation’s most wealthy industrialists at the height of the Guilded Age.
 
Here are links to representative examples of Evans’ work, and a link to the well-known documentary on Evans, “The Angel That Stands By Me”
 
 
MUSEUM COLLECTION / CRAFT
We’ll pair turn-of-the-century craft with the artist: period painted and glazed ceramics with intricate floral designs, along with period cloisonné (enamel over copper, silver, brass) plates and vessels, all boasting colorful and often symmetrical patterns, with enamel works similar to works acquired by Henry Walters, an avid art-collector and key player in the history of Airlie. 
 
Two examples, one enamel cloisonné vessel collected by Walters, and a Swiss plate in intricately pained ceramic:
 
MUSEUM HISTORY / GARDEN 
In keeping with the springtime theme, the Historic Rolesville Society is gathering interested gardeners to pursue a springtime plan for enhancing and adding appropriate authentic plantings outside our museum’s historic John Lewis Terrell house.
 
I hope this helps explain the spring exhibit. Would still love to speak with any interested area artist who is especially inspired by this upcoming exhibit!
 
Thanks for your interest and help!!!!
