Betsy Evans was born in West Virginia and raised in Houston. She received her B.A in Anthropology with a minor in Printmaking from the University of Maine in 1991. After stints working at a history museum in Portsmouth, NH and as an ambulance EMT in Taos County, NM, Betsy landed in Portland, OR where she earned a certificate in Woodworking with an emphasis in Metalsmithing from Oregon College of Art and Craft in 1999. Betsy moved back to the Houston area in the summer of 1999. Several years later, she and two partners opened 18 Hands Gallery on 19th Street in the Heights, where we represented national ceramic artists for nine years. 18 Hands Gallery continues to represent these artists at the annual National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts (NCECA) convention. Betsy currently has an installation at McCoy Workspace Solutions and is represented by Ariodante Gallery in New Orleans, LA. She is the head of Outreach and Fund-Raising for ClayHouston, a non-profit group that supports ceramic artists in the Houston area, and volunteers weekly with the Children's Art Project at MD Anderson.
