Evaul studied painting and printmaking at
Syracuse University School of Art, and Pratt Institute (BFA)
with graduate seminars at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1981).
He came to Provincetown in 1970 as a painting Fellow at the Fine
Arts Work Center.
1234While living in New York, Evaul further
developed his printmaking skills by working at Solo Press -- contract
printing for artists -- and teaching lithography at Pratt Graphics
Center. As a contributing writer for Print Review and other magazines,
he produced reviews and scholarly articles including an important
historical research paper entitled The Provincetown Printers: Genesis
of a Unique Woodcut Tradition which helped in the revival of the
obscure and nearly lost technique of single-block "white-line" printmaking.
in the late 70's, Evaul spent more than ten years dividing his time
in the studio with a career in the arts administration field as museum/gallery
director-curator before returning to the studio full-time. As a result,
Evaul embarked on a continuing series of alternative space exhibitions
of his paintings and prints at such places as Thos. Moser Cabinet
Maker Showrooms, Portland, ME; Philadelphia, PA, and Alexandria, VA;
and in New York City at Bergdorf-Goodman, 5th Ave & 57th St., SMED
International Show rooms, SoHo, and the studios of SMA RealTime
Video in SoHo, New York City.
1234Evaul's work has been exhibited
or collected by numerous museums including The Zimmerli Museum
of Art at Rutgers University, The Georgia Museum of Art, The
Sunrise Art Museum, The Kresge Art Museum, The Provincetown Art Association
and Museum, The Pilgrim Monument & Provincetown Museum, The Cape Museum
of Fine Art and others.
1234Alongside his painting,
Evaul has produced over 100 woodblock images and over 1,000 prints.
He pushes the limits of the medium by utilizing multiple layering
of color and expanding the images in size and complexity. Seeking
out the finest of hand-made Japanese papers and other water-leaf papers,
he produces small, medium and large scale work, the largest of which
measure 3' x 6'. A print from his Muse-Musicians series, The
Joint is Jumpin' was included in the Smithsonian Institution's
traveling exhibition sponsored show, Provincetown and the Art of
1234In 1991, Madeline Fortunoff
Fine Prints, Locust Valley, NY exhibited William Evaul at the
International Fine Print Dealers Association Print Fair
at the Park Avenue Armory, New York City, and has continued to exhibit
his work in the 11 subsequent annual exhibitions. He has been represented
by the Aaron Galleries of Chicago, IL since 1994 who have included
him in numerous exhibitions around the country. Evaul has exhibited
widely in Provincetown and the Outer Cape.
1234As an educator, William
Evaul periodically presents lectures and workshops at a variety of
institutions such as: Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, Philadelphia,
PA; The Georgia Museum of Art, Athens, GA; The Sunrise Art Museum,
Charleston, WV, Syracuse University School of Art, Syracuse, NY; The
Zimmerli Art Museum and others, as well as numerous local arts
and historical institutions on Cape Cod, MA.
1234In 1997 Evaul and his wife
purchased the Moorlands Inn, North Truro, MA and created "An
Artistic Bed & Breakfast" where art, music and culture
are nurtured. The inn features Evaul's artwork as well as the Evaul's
private collection. Current projects involve landscaping in the manner
of "Giverny" including sculpture gardens, tea gardens, rose
gardens, kitchen and herb gardens and the installation of a world
class croquet court.
