About the Artist

Madge Evers lives in western Massachusetts. Using materials from nature, her art originates in the garden. Madge studied at the Maine Photographic Workshop, has a B.A. in English from Suffolk University, and an M.A. from the University of Rhode Island. She began making mushroom spore print art in 2015, and since 2016, her work has been shown at galleries in New England and New York, including the International Print Center, the Vermont Center for Photography, and the Fitchburg Art Museum. Madge cultivates the mushroom variety Stropharia rugoso-annulata in her garden, and forages for fungi and plants in fields, on roadsides, and in the woods. When not making spore imagery, Madge can be found teaching high school English, or somewhere in the garden.
