Conner Everts was born in Bellingham, Washington in 1926 and spent his early childhood living in the major port cities of the Pacific coast. After World War II, he studied at the Chouinard Art Institute and at universities in California, Washington, Mexico and England. Everts, widely exhibited in the United States and overseas, was instrumental in the founding of the Los Angeles Printmaking Society, and was among the first guest artists at the Tamarind Workshop.
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.
