Evered House Newsletter 1
JUN. 26, 2020
Dear Friend of the House,
We hope this finds you well in these challenging times. Our country has been through a lot the last several months, and like you, we at the Evered House hope and pray that more peaceful times are on the horizon.
At the Evered House, we believe in the power of stories— and places to create them are needed now, more than ever. We think it’s important more people get to know our artist residency, which is why we launched a new, dedicated website.
You can find it here at
Would you please take a look? It was designed by Ava Gaul, who did a fantastic job.
There are beautiful pieces by John and Margaret Evered, written about what the Evered House—which is dedicated to their grandfather— means to them personally. There’s an essay from one of our former residents, two time Purple Heart recipient and Vietnam veteran Loren Marsters. There’s a brand new, updated video tour of the House, pictures from the many events we’ve hosted over the last few years, and information about upcoming projects as well, including the construction of an outdoor stage, which we hope to finish this fall. There are also snapshots of our new succulent garden and pictures and credits from our “Adopt a Sailor - 50 State Tour” — which has hit ten states already! We plan to travel to more states, either in person, or virtually (Via Zoom), in the coming year, with the ultimate goal of presenting the play live, in all 50 states!
In addition to the website, we’ve been fortunate enough to be joined by Marianna Sierra for the summer as our Development/Public Relations intern. Marianna is a sophomore at Yale University studying the History of Art with a particular interest in Interwar and Post-War modernism.
Please feel free to share the website and spread the word to anyone that may want to show their support. There’s a “donate” button on the opening page, making it fast, easy, and tax deductible.
Remember also, the House is open to veterans, journalists who serve in conflict zones (at home and abroad), first responders, front line workers, everyone who has a story to tell or an art they want to practice. As always, residents stay at no cost to themselves.
Spread the word, will you? And thank you for your kind consideration.
