Opening Reception: 6-8 p.m., Friday, April 19
This exhibit, organized by AMSET, depicts the familiar creatures that inhabit the Texas landscape in sculpture, drawing, and woodcuts. Everett’s animals have personality. The rich hues used in his drawings and sculpture emphasize a playfulness and quirkiness. Each sculpture begins with a sketch and laminated hardwood as the material. Using a traditional mallet and wood gouges, Everett removes material slowly revealing the rough forms of animals. As the process progresses, he draws directly on the wood to assist in visualizing the form he wants to achieve. Once the carving is complete, he paints the wood forms with oils with his unmistakable palette of vibrant hues.
