A Paintrist can belong to more then one country!

This is a list in progress …

Mary Agnes Yerkes, Moon Set and Sunrise Glow, 1964

“It was..California, and more specifically San Francisco, that became the first mecca for women artists in the West”. 

In 1917, she married Navy Commander Archibald Nelson Offley, (Archie), and had one child, Mary Yerkes Offley, born in 1918 and who died at the age of 15 from nephritis. The early married life to a naval officer found her transferred to several ports. Portsmouth, VA in the East and on the West Coast; San Diego, Vallejo, Long Beach and San Francisco, CA. among other locations. They eventually took up permanent residence in San Mateo, CA. in the 1930s. This time period saw the onset of the Great Depression and she realized that a formal career in painting would be difficult . “The Great Depression of the 1930s and the consequent lack of funds to patronize art severely affected the careers of many artists, both men and women”. A few artists during this time were lucky to find jobs through the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project in painting murals in public buildings, but for many artists their careers were crushed. This situation was confirmed by Mary Agnes’ own journal, on one weekend’s journey to San Francisco from San Mateo in 1935. Mary Agnes had an appointment with the Art Director of Gump’s Department Store. She left very discouraged because the director said “nobody is buying art during these times”. Their lifestyle was modest but far better than most during this period with Archie’s secure position at the Office of Censorship in the Navy. Any free time and saved money went for putting gas in the car, to roam the countryside for her artistic exploration.

Mary Agnes Yerkes, Cliff Palace, 1973

“The two Yerkes oils in particular, [Crocker Art Museum], are wonderful examples of California Impressionism, and by a woman, which makes them even more rare.”  - Scott A. Shields, Ph.D., Associate Director/ Chief Curator, Crocker Art Museum.

With Northern California as a permanent base, Mary Agnes now painted for herself. She had ready access to some of the West’s greatest natural wonders. She traveled, camped and painted from Yosemite Valley to Santa Fe and from Tucson to Alberta, Canada. Travelogues, kept by her husband Archie, showed detailed records of these adventures all throughout the 1930s and 40s. They toured in their specially modified 1920s Buick which was equipped with extra storage pockets and a canvas sling for an interior bed. Mary Agnes, Archie and their daughter Mary, (nicknamed Min), spent weekends and holidays traveling on dirt roads to explore the inner sanctums of our newly established National Parks. Extended expeditions took them several times throughout the West and they toured many National Parks including; Crater Lake, Mt Rainier, Glacier, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Rainbow Bridge and Arches, Mesa Verde, Joshua Tree, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument and Yosemite, as well as the Oregon, Washington and California coasts. Yosemite Valley was a particular favorite subject matter and destination because of its beauty and proximity to San Mateo.

Mary Agnes mostly painted en plein-air but she also worked at home in a studio. Numerous photographs were taken by her on each trip to be used as reference later. Archie died in 1945 and Mary Agnes’ painting efforts took a pause. It resumed in the 1950s with encouragement from her second partner, Albert Cobb, although she did not remarry. Mary Agnes continued to camp and paint the American West well into the 1970s and into her nineties. She also hooked pictorial rugs, wove fabric for her own clothes and accessories, and carved furniture in the same Southwestern and natural motifs she loved to paint. She died in San Mateo, CA on November 8, 1989 at a grand old age of 103. After decades of painting, over 150 of her paintings adorned her own walls at the time of her death. The art world knows her as “Mary Agnes” Yerkes but she, as well as her family members, called herself “Agnes”.
