The Unique Folk Artist of Airlie

Record #:
Folk artist Minnie Evans, a long time employee of Airlie Gardens in Wilmington, has had her drawings exhibited in New York City four times. Her work, done mostly in crayon or colored pencil, is of her own original style, though it has been stated that her drawings suggest the manner of the Swiss artist Klee. In general, she is a surrealist, rarely attempting to define the actuality of a person or scene, but instead reveling in an elaborate, swirling, vividly colored pattern of metaphorical suggestion.
