Maggie Evans graduated from Utah State University with a BFA in illustration in 2003 and received an MFA in painting from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2007. Maggie's art is perpetuated by her intimacy with music. Her current portfolio is based on her experiences playing bass in a blues band in bars throughout Georgia and South Carolina. Working from memory in charcoal on paper, Maggie uses an improvisatory approach to explore the gritty character of bars from her perspective as a musician. Maggie's work has been exhibited throughout the United States and Puerto Rico. She was awarded the Graduate Fellows Award from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 and has received placement awards in several juried exhibitions, including Best of Show. Maggie has had five solo exhibitions and has been included in several invitational exhibits as well as over twenty-five group shows. In addition to working as an artist, she performs regularly throughout the southeast as the bassist and vocalist of Silver Lining, David Lugo and Latin Jazz Motion, and the Hitman Blues Band.
