Abstract landscape painter Mary Page Evans is at work in her oceanfront Gulf Stream apartment with “picturesque Turner-Constable sea and sky” for a Spring show of her work, Gardens Through the Years, at Wilmington’s Somerville Manning Gallery. At Gavlak Gallery’s new venue at the Royal Poinciana Plaza, Kyle DeWoody and Sara Gavlak welcomed nearly 100 guests on a stormy winter night to create awareness about the millions of children who do not have access to develop their creative artistic talents and how ProjectArt is making art classes available at public libraries to those who might otherwise never have the opportunity.
At The Breakers, Cavallino Classic’s Concorso d’Eleganza turned the resort’s Great Lawn into a showcase for post-war Italian industrial art with its annual vintage Ferrari exhibition. Whether on the runway or the roadway, Milan and Turin designers turned Italian Modernism into an international brand. Despite the damp drizzly English weather, worldwide Ferrari owners and enthusiasts rubbed elbows as they perused each and every one of the museum-quality roadsters. As Cavallino’s judges made their rounds requiring owners to “Start your engine,” the roar of those 12-cylinder racetrack engines echoed from the past. What with newer models reaching 0-200mph in somewhere near 10 seconds, how much slower could Palm Beachers want to motor them down to the golf course.

Art Class: Mary Page Evans Gulf Stream & Wilmington
Last week I spent a morning with the prolific Mary Page Evans whose five-decade career has been celebrated by major galleries and museums in the US and abroad. While her formal studio is in Wilmington, her works-in-progress are scattered throughout her Florida apartment that she shares with her husband, former three-term US Congressman Thomas B. Evans. While Tom remains active in conservation issues and polishing his golf game, when Mary Page is not at one of her easels, she is at the Armory Art School taking classes or jaunting down the road to the Poetry Festival in Delray Beach.
