Philip John Evett was my art professor at Trinity when I was an undegraduate. The influence he has had on his students is far reaching and long lasting. His wife, Joann, is an old friend and colleague, and we had the pleasure today of driving up to their home and studio/gallery in Blanco, Texas. Whe I walked into the gallery attached to his woodsy hand-built Hill Country home, I was astounded once again at the beauty and the scale of his work. He continues to sculpt and show and is one of the most delightful men you will ever meet. His work speaks for itself – solid, lyrical and impeccible in its craftsmanship and vision.
