Peter Everett graduated from Brigham Young Universtiy in 1996 with a double major in painting and marketing. He is currently an Associate Professor of Art at BYU.

Professor Everett’s piece Donkey Kong is part of an exciting and interactive exhibition at the Main Gallery of the Salt Lake Art Center entitled Contemporary Masters. The show is the result of collaboration between the Salt Lake Art Center and the 337 Project and consists of a playable 18-hole miniature golf course where each hole is a work of art. The 23 participating artists were selected from a juried competition where they submitted a proposal detailing an idea for a miniature golf hole. Everett’s Donkey Kong is at Hole No.13 and consists of putting the ball through playable Donkey Kong machines. It is a work that examines the futility of striving: getting the ball in the hole sets off a prolonged monk’s chant and returns the ball to its original position.

In 2008, BYU recognized his work with a Young Scholar Award. In 2012, Everett participated in the Utah Ties Juried Exhibition at the Central Utah Art Center.

From January of 2012 to January of 2013, Everett served as a mentor to Maddison Colvin as part of a print exchange, a corroborative printmaking project between BYU and the University of Hawaii. An exhibit of the final works was displayed at the Harris Fine Arts Center on BYU campus and at the Honolulu Print Makers Guild.
