 “An Artist of considerable technical skill and accomplishment, Everett’s past work has focused on landscape, on figurative work, still lives and waterscapes. The subject matter is always a proxy, a way of seeking some further understanding of our human condition and our interaction with the world.”

Christine Sowiak, Curator of Art

Nickle Arts Museum, 2007
