Richard Evans - 2005 - Outstanding Former Faculty
Professor Richard Evans, Department of Art, received a B.A. in education from the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1952 and an M.A. in art from the University of Wyoming in 1959. His 30-year career with the Department of Art demonstrates Evans’ passion for teaching, as well as for his own work.
Well-known for his nurturing attitude toward students, Evans inspired and set many students on their career paths. Several of Wyoming’s K-12 art teachers are Evans’ former students.
After retiring from teaching in 1991, Evans worked tirelessly in his Laramie studio—a converted garage—to create a new series of paintings, Celebrations / Point – Counterpoint. He exhibited this work at the UW Art Museum between June and September 2004. Large in scale, this series of ten paintings has complex images drawn in freehand.
