Andrea Hoelscher exhibits photos titled "Little Women"

Sunday, January 13- Thursday, February 21
Location: Archabbey Library Gallery

Saint Meinrad Archabbey Library Gallery, St. Meinrad, IN, will host an exhibit of photographs by Andrea Hoelscher called "Little Women." The exhibit will be on display from January 13 to February 21.

pic_news_hoelscher_art.jpgHoelscher says her "Little Women" series is a reflection on learned gender roles. The photos are illustrated with household scenes populated with female figurines. "The women in these photographs are surrounded by the domestic trappings of femininity. Sponges and laundry piles loom like buildings, and a muffin tin becomes a sticky trap. Instead of actually doing housework, or applying make-up, the women encounter these objects as the basis of the very world they explore."

The Ferdinand, IN, photographer has a bachelor of fine arts in photography and drawing from the University of Northern Iowa and a master of fine arts in photography from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

She has exhibited her work in shows and galleries in New York, Kansas, Minnesota, Kentucky, Virginia, Oregon, North Dakota, Illinois and Ohio. Currently, she is an adjunct faculty member in the Art Department of the University of Southern Indiana in Evansville.
