Much of the evidence of women’s struggle for recognition in the arts has disappeared and so have those who have taken part in them. In the 21st Century, with women comprising 50 percent of the professional artists, we cannot afford to neglect the achievement of this segment of the population.
Leslie Compton introduces you to one of those women, her Great-Aunt, Evylena Nunn Miller through her new book, The Forgotten Artist.
Evylena Nunn Miller, was born on July 4, 1888, in Mayfield, Kansas relocating to Santa Ana, California with her family in 1903. Maturing as an accomplished painter, she became a leader among her contemporaries, eager to help artists by establishing scholarships, creating new venues for exhibitions, lecturing, teaching and lending impetus to women’s organizations so they would be recognized among the male dominated artistic community.
Among her many achievements, Evylena became the youngest artist to have a painting accepted by the Smithsonian Institute.
Evylena’s landscapes were her view of the world. Her life force was her faith and her paintings were acts of faith as you will see through the many photographs of her art in The Forgotten Artist.
