Evan Lindquist


Artist-Printmaker
Artist Laureate for the State of Arkansas, 2013-2017

Evan Lindquist creates original prints in his private studio in Jonesboro, Arkansas. He taught art, printmaking and drawing at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro for forty years and retired from ASU in 2003.

Most of Lindquist's prints are engravings, developed from his own original ideas and designs. Using a traditional engraver's burin, he engraves his ideas onto copper plates. He prints the plates in the traditional process of intaglio printing.

Honors include: Appointed to be the first Artist Laureate for the State of Arkansas, 2013-2017. Lifetime Achievement Award, presented by The Society of American Graphic Artists (SAGA), 2010. The Arkansas Governor’s Lifetime Achievement Award, 2004. Emporia State University's Distinguished Alumni Award, 2004.

He was named to the Centennial list of 100 most distinguished faculty at Arkansas State University 1909-2009. He was profiled in the ASU publication, 100 Years 100 Voices, featuring the most significant ASU personalities during the first 100 years of the University's existence. He was named Outstanding Faculty Member at ASU in 1981 and appointed First Chairman of the President’s Fellows.

His original prints may be seen in many public collections in the United States and other countries. Lindquist has had more than 60 solo exhibitions and has received more than 80 awards in about 300 competitive exhibitions

The Arkansas Arts Center, Little Rock, maintains a traveling exhibition of Lindquist prints available for loan to arts organizations, colleges, universities, libraries, schools, banks, and businesses.

His subjects have explored diverse and creative kinds of content, including String Theories, Labyrinths, Academe, Portraits, Documents, Visions, and other themes. [See the prints] Various works have been described as Satire, Analytical, Metaphysical, and as "metaphors of the mind". His process of copper plate engraving derives from ancient techniques used by goldsmiths, armor makers, and artist-printmakers. Outstanding artist-printmakers who used this creative process were his teacher, Mauricio Lasansky, Gabor Peterdi, S.W. Hayter, Albrecht Dürer, Lucas van Leyden, Claude Mellan, William Hogarth, Rembrandt, Master of the Playing Cards, and many others.
