Overview

Minnie Evans was the gatekeeper of Wilmington's historic Airlie Gardens from 1949 to 1974 and is considered one of America's most important visionary artists. Evans's take on color, mysticism, and symmetry made her garden-infused art unique. To create a fitting memorial, Virginia Wright-Frierson assembled a team of North Carolinians to interpret the artist's themes in various media. With over fifty full-color photographs and a narrative based on interviews with all eight Bottle Chapel artists, this book collects, for the first time, the story of Minnie Evans, her visionary art, and the garden that now memorializes her.
