Arizona-born and Baltimore-based artist Andrea Sherrill Evans’ perspective is largely influenced by the varied landscapes of the places she has lived, including the Southwest, New England, and the mid-Atlantic regions of the US. Through intricate drawings, sculpture, and performative gestures, Evans explores new forms of nature that reveal the active and irreversible impact of the human hand.
Evans is a recipient of a Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship in Drawing, St. Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Award, Blanche E. Colman Award, and was a 2017 Trawick Prize Semifinalist. Her work has been exhibited at spaces including Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Brooklyn, NY), The Dorado Project (Brooklyn, NY), Drive-By (Watertown, MA), phICA (Phoenix, AZ), Montserrat College of Art (Beverly, MA) and SPACE Gallery (Pittsburgh, PA). Her most recent solo exhibition, Invasive, took place at VisArts (Rockville, MD) in fall 2018. Evans currently teaches as a full-time faculty member in the Drawing Department at Maryland Institute College of Art.
