This painting was featured in our weekly email on 1/12/18 along with the following gallery comments:

Evelynne Mess was the wife of George Jo Mess, whom we featured last week. Her early career was largely as a printmaker and her later works tended more toward paintings. And throughout her artistic career, she seemed to hold a fascination for mushrooms. To wit, today’s work Brown County Morels (our title) – the holy grail for any mushroom hunter down kicking around the Brown County hills in May. The painting has been cleaned and revarnished and it’s housed in a nice, tooled champaign gold antique reproduction frame.
