Drevas at Ha­ley Fine Art

Rappahannock News - - FROM PAGE ONE • WASHINGTON • NEWS -

Artist Jeanne Drevas, who moved from her long­time Sper­ryville home last year to Ore­gon, will pay a visit on Satur­day, June 14, to Rap­pa­han­nock County — “the land that I know the most in­ti­mately and which not only in­flu­enced and nur­tured my art work, but gave me the ma­te­ri­als with which to make my cre­ations . . . bark, vine, grass, pine nee­dles.”

Drevas will be at Ha­ley Fine Art in Sper­ryville (42 Main St., 540-987-1000) from 4 to 7 p. m., to sign copies of “Green Art: Trees, Leaves and Roots,” the re­cent book by E. Ash­ley Rooney and Margery Gold­berg that fea­tures her work and that of about 100 other “Green Art” pi­o­neers — but mostly to visit with friends, fans and ac­quain­tances from her 40 years here in Rap­pa­han­nock.

Artist Jeanne Drevas says she’s found plenty of “green art” in Ore­gon, in­clud­ing the moss hat she’s wear­ing here. “Ev­ery time it rains it comes alive!” she says.
