A Message from the Staff

We are all very sad and heartbroken to have lost a dear friend, Byron Bratt. Byron was a master mezzotint artist, a vital part of the fabric of the Schack organization and the Arts in Everett since the 1970s. Byron had a genius way of finding poetry in everyday objects and simple still-life compositions. His prints always had a story and he was the best at telling the stories from his prints and his life. Byron was honored as our Artist of the Year in 1993.

Over the years, all of the Schack staff would be frequently visited by Byron. We would be the lucky recipients of annual Valentine cards, shared lunches (french fries!) and many wonderful stories of his love of his family and ours and occasional local gossip.

We will miss his presence at the Schack, in the print studio, his smile and as a dear friend.

We love you Byron…

Schack Staff, board and arts community
