Louisburg, NC: William B. Evans Exhibits Assemblages in Geometry is DNA

Born 1947, New Yorker, William B. Evans lived and worked in Utica as an artist and gallerist from1972 to 2009. There he owned and operated the John Street Studios and Galleries in an historic downtown building. An Abstract Expressionist painter throughout his career, even in his observed drawings and paintings Evans would visualize and style them abstractly. Since the 80s from his renovations and carpentry in historic buildings he has found a ready geometry, interesting shapes, color and textures in leftover discarded materials and has been making assemblages of wood and found objects such as currently on view in the Geometry is DNA exhibit.

From frequent trips he made to Columbia, South America during the 70s, William experienced Latin culture and a nitty-gritty resourcefulness that has richened his art making. A year in France, he felt the inescapable romance of the birthplace of modernism; his drawings and paintings shimmered with the lingering light and energy of that great leap forward. He now lives in the Adirondack Mountains where his renovation of an 1880 farmhouse has provided new materials and inspiration for his abstract assemblages. 

As an artist Evans has a rich background; he personally shaped his art training with travel, exceptional teachers and studio experience. After graduating from Yale with a B.A. in political science he began his art studies, studying watercolor with Edward Christiana also an Andrejev Galleries exhibiting artist. He furthered his studies in other media and design at the Munson-Williams –Proctors School of Art Foundation Program in the mid 70s and continued on as graphic arts studio assistant for Georgia Deal until 1985. 


He has soloed at Utica College, the Stanley Gallery in Utica, the Remington Museum in Ogdensburg, NY and the Cougar Gallery in Herkimer, NY in 2015. This April selected assemblages and paintings from 1974 to 2019 were the solo feature at The Other Side Gallery in Utica. 

The Geometry is DNA exhibit opens August 7 continuing until October 5; there will be an Art Party for the exhibit with live music 6-9, Friday, September 6.
