Biography  
Minnie Jones Evans


"I love people, to a certain extent, but sometimes I want to get off in the garden to talk with God. I have the blooms, and when the blooms are gone, I love to watch the green. God dressed the world in green." -- Minnie Evans

As gatekeeper at the formal Airlie Gardens in North Carolina since the 1930's, Minnie Evans did artwork informed by her love of flora and fauna, as well as her deeply held Christian beliefs.

An important American visionary artists of the 20th century, Evans was collected by Jean Dubuffet in the 1960's and has been exhibited widely, including a solo exhibition at the Whitney Museum in 1975.
