Joseph Alma Freestone Everett, 1884-1945
Joseph Alma Freestone Everett was born Salt Lake City in 1884. He was a watercolorist, muralist, and teacher. He died in Salt Lake City in 1945.
Everett studied with James Harwood, John Hafen, and Lee Greene Richards in Salt Lake City. While serving a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, he studied at the South Kensington School with E. A. Smith. He later studied in Paris and in New York City with the muralist Kenyon Cox.
Everett worked for a time as an engineer-draftsman for the Oregon Short Line Railroad, but continued to be a prolific painter. He sketched landscape watercolors and genre paintings—hospital patients receiving treatment and the razing of the Salt Lake Theater. Examples of his work are City Creek Canyon (1943), Main Street at South Temple, Salt Lake City (1940), and Old Salt Lake Theater(1943).
