Stephen W. Evans:
Featured Artist

From April 29th to May 4th, the art of Stephen W. Evans will be on display in the Auditorium of the Avondale Public Library, which will foreground the Library as the festival venue for community writing, poetry, and dance!




Stephen W. Evans is an artist simultaneously preoccupied with the absurd and the existential. Evans’ paintings are amalgamations of sources gathered from art history, literature, cinema, and invented imagery, all favoring the atmospheric, as well as a benign sense of danger. Evans currently resides in Birmingham, Alabama with his wife, Lauren Frances Evans, and their two daughters, Agnes and Edie, and is a preparator and art handler for the Birmingham Museum of Art.
