Images and reviews of Evertt’s work have been featured in publications such as Sculpture Magazine, The Southern Illinoisan, The Daily Constitutional, PORT, The Oregonian, the Willamette Week, Culturephile: Portland Arts, Blog4Culture, and the Seattle Weekly.

“The kinetic sculpture and film that is featured in the show are intended to address the sense of purpose many of us derive from the work we undertake as professionals seeking to earn a living,” said Beidler, a Southwest Portland resident. “The works employ humor, irony, and honesty to provide the viewer with a glimpse into the monotony and often repetitious actions that are required in the pursuit of long-term goals.”

Beidler’s work is included in private collections across the United States such as the permanent collection of Southern Illinois University Carbondale, and on public display at the confluence of the Mississippi and Ohio Rivers in Cairo, Illinois, which is the first public commission of his career. Images and reviews of his work have been featured in publications such as Sculpture Magazine, The Daily Constitutional, The Oregonian and the Willamette Week. His exhibition record includes group exhibitions at the Grounds for Sculpture (Hamilton, N.J.) and the Nu-Art Series Gallery (St. Louis, Mo.), as well as solo exhibitions at Gallery II (Washington State University), the Autzen Gallery (Portland State University) and Gallery 500 (Portland).
