Biography from Annex Galleries:
Connor Everts, born in Bellingham, Washington, spent his early childhood living in the major port cities of the Pacific coast.  After World War II, he studied art on the G.I. Bill at the Chouinard Art Institute* and at universities in California, Washington, Mexico and England.  Upon the completion of his studies he worked nights as a longshoreman in the Los Angeles-Long Beach Harbor and painted during the day. 

An industrial accident left him unable to continue longshoring, and he turned to teaching art.  Over the years he has taught at a number of institutions in California including the University of Southern California, University of California at Riverside, California Institute of the Arts* and the San Francisco Art Institute*. 

He also taught at the University of Washington in Seattle and Cranbrook Academy of Art* in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.  As a lecturer he has visited Latin America, Japan and Europe.

Connor Everts was instrumental in the founding of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society, and was among the first guest artists at the Tamarind* Workshop in New Mexico.   As a visiting artist at Littleton Studios, Everts coined the word "vitreography" to describe the process of printing fine-art editions from glass matrices.

Evert's work is in numerous corporate and public collections including the Museums of Modern Art in New York, San Francisco, and Tokyo, the Art Institute of Chicago, Brooklyn Museum, Detroit Institute of Art, the Library of Congress, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Milwaukee Museum of Art, and the National Collection, Washington, D. C.

Evert's art mirrors his interest in Gestalt psychology -- the making of a whole from disparate parts or dissimilar bits of information. The artist places these incongruent elements, most plucked from the flotsam of contemporary living, within shallow space creating a tableau of shifting relationships.
