MARGARET EVANGELINE CV

Margaret Evangeline is a New York-based contemporary painter, sculptor and installation artist born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana whose cajun heritage has come to define her work. Evangeline is known for her camellia paintings that depict the southern bloom as an icon either over fluid, wave-like networks of lines or centralized on the picture plane, dominating the composition. Evangeline was the first female recipient of an MFA from the University of New Orleans, and is the permanent collections of the New Orleans Museum of Art, LSU Museum of Art and Georgia Museum of Art to name a few. She has been awarded a grant from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, and was the artist-in-residence for the Santa Fe Art Institute and for Louisiana ArtWorks International. Evangeline lives and works in Chatham, New York.
