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 received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston/Tufts University, and her BFA from Arizona State University. She is a recipient of a MSAC Independent Artist Award, Massachusetts Cultural Council Artist Fellowship in Drawing, St. Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Award, Blanche E. Colman Award, and was a 2019 Trawick Prize Semifinalist. Her work has been exhibited at spaces including C. Grimaldis Gallery (Baltimore, MD), VisArts (Rockville, MD), Tiger Strikes Asteroid (Brooklyn, NY), Drive-By (Watertown, MA), Montserrat College of Art (Beverly, MA), phICA (Phoenix, AZ). Evans currently teaches as a full-time faculty member in the Drawing Department at Maryland Institute College of Art.
