Mary Page Evans paints her landscapes en plein air, observing and capturing not only the physical aspects of a place but the energy and atmosphere as well. She brings skies and fields alive with generous, painterly strokes of oil on canvas or gestural inks and pastels on paper. Inspired by Cezanne and Hans Hoffman, Evans “lets color determine the structure and create the space” in her works. The joy Evans experiences in the painting process and the natural world is evident in her expressionistic landscapes.
Since the early 1970s, Mary Page Evans’s work has been the focus of numerous solo and group exhibitions in galleries, art museums, and universities as well as in United States Embassies around the world. Her work is in the collections of several public and corporate collections such as the DuPont Company, MBNA, the National Museum of Women in the Arts, the State Museum of Pennsylvania, the Delaware Art Museum, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.
