Multi-disciplinary Visual Artist + Producer: Drawing. Photography. Video.
Olivia Evans is a grant-awarded, multidisciplinary visual artist and producer based in Spokane, WA. Working in video, photography, drawing, film, and beadwork, her work is heavily influenced by motherhood, nature, the subconscious, and personal experiences - intertwining traditional and digital media to create narratives of the self. All these influences echo her eclectic cultural background of growing up as a Black, Italian, and Native woman. She boasts a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Art, and a minor in Film from Eastern Washington University, and graduated with the Dean’s Excellence Award. As a producer and social media manager for the Alliance for Media Arts + Culture, an arts non-profit, she continues to elevate marginalized communities in film & art through Social Media posts, workshops, and Documentary Film events. Her work has been featured in several exhibitions, for instance, Spokane Art's SATURATE, Terrain 12 & 13, INT’L All Media Exhibition 2022, Carl Maxey Center’s Our Stories Our Visions exhibit, The Kress Gallery, Land Acknowledgement exhibition (GUUAC), NW Fair Housing Alliance Conference 2022, The Gonzaga Family Haven, and as a co-curator at the GU Urban Arts Center for “Home: Imagining the Irrevocable." She has also been featured on KXLY and with Artist Trust. Today, she continues to expand her art practice in many facets, such as grant reviewing, grant writing, gallery exhibiting, youth/ adult media projects, project collaborations with other artists, and film festival panels.
