Born in New Mexico, Dick Evans grew up in a rural farming community in Texas, and had no exposure to art until he started college. Fortunately he was required to take drawing and design courses as he started his major of architecture. Realizing architecture was not right for him, he transferred to the University of Utah to study art.
After completing college, Evans began a university teaching career at several universities which paralleled his successful painting career. Examples of his work are found in 7 books and many periodicals and publications. Evans’ art is found in 17 Art Museums and over a dozen Corporate collections around the world.
He has had over 30 solo shows as well as numerous group shows and invitational shows. Regardless of medium, critics and reviewers are always struck by the richness of form and color used by Evans.
