Little Women: Photographs by Andrea Hoelscher

On view: November 20-December 18

Opening reception: Friday, December 4, 5-7 p.m.

The scenes in Little Women draw the viewer into an imaginary world, provoking questions about “women’s work.” Surrounded by the literal paraphernalia of womanhood, the figures in Hoelsher’s photographs inhabit a vast, complex world that extends well beyond the edge of the picture frame.

Andrea Hoelscher was born in Marshalltown, Iowa in 1968. She has used straight film-based darkroom techniques, collage and paint, as well as digital alterations in her photography-based artwork. Hoelscher completed an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1994. She has had solo exhibitions at the Sloan Fine Art Center,
Lockhaven, Pennsylvania, the Schmidt Art Center, Belleville, Illinois, Manifest Gallery in Cincinnati, the New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art, E3 Gallery in New York City, and UC Berkeley in San Francisco. She has also exhibited her work internationally in Poznan, Poland, and Berlin, Germany. In 2014 Hoelscher received a grant from the Individual Artists’ Program of the Indiana Arts Commission. She has taught photography since 1994, and has been on the faculty of the University of Southern Indiana Art Department since 2006.

A concurrent reception will be held in 849 Gallery Friday, December 4, 5 – 7 p.m. for Something Glimpsed Head On, paintings by Laurie Fader & Gwendolyn Kerber.
