About the Artists
Everitt Clark took up photography in 2002. He uses a large format film camera and processes all of his photographs by hand in his own darkroom. A single print can take many hours to produce, and each one is a unique labor of love. He uses this old-school method because it allows him to transform objects that are precious to their owners into precious objects for everyone.
Ev has previously exhibited images from Treasures of the Heart at the 2016 OCD Conference in Chicago, the 2017 OCD Conference in San Francisco, and at Artomatic in both 2016 (Potomac, MD) and 2017 (Arlington, VA). He exhibited images from Close to Home, a series of suburban landscape photographs, at the Arts Club of Washington in 2012. He was awarded a 2015-16 Professional Fellowship by the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
Sam Lacombe studied painting at Boston University with David Aronson, George Nick, and Robert D’Arista. He is a painter involved in the issues of form, light, space, design, and process, and for the past twenty years his paintings have centered on urban Americana graphic signage. Recently he has been working exclusively on small-scale gouache paintings. He loves to teach, and has been doing so most of his life. He currently teaches in the Painting, Illustration, and Foundation departments at Maryland Institute College of Art. His work is in private collections and has been exhibited in group and solo shows nationally and abroad. He has lived in Baltimore since 2006 with his wife and two sons.
Samuel Miller has been painting landscapes, sketching cathedrals and building dioramas since he was a child. These pursuits took a backseat to his family and to his careers as a physicist, engineer, intellectual property lawyer and law school professor. Sam changed career again about ten years ago and established connections with the Alexandria Art League. He exhibited a range of work including portraits, figure drawings, clay sculptures and landscapes. He pulled together technical and artistic disciplines and began constructing light boxes. He began showing them in the Torpedo Factory Gallery in Alexandria, at a solo show at the NOVA Fisher Gallery in 2012 and, most recently, in a 2016 exhibit at the National Building Museum.
