Details

A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Katrina Andry received an MFA in Printmaking from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA in 2010. Her work explores the negative effects stereotypes have on people of color. Where stereotypes are typically used to help us normalize our surroundings by categorizing groups of people, the byproduct of stereotypes is that they also create arbitrary differences between people.

Andry was listed in the January-February 2012 issue of "Art in Print" as one of the top 50 printmakers. She has also been awarded residencies from the Joan Mitchell Center of New Orleans, Anchor Graphics in Chicago, and Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California.

This installment of the Experience UWF Downtown Lecture Series is sponsored, in part, by the UWF Office of Equity & Diversity as part of the John C. Pace Symposium Series. The lecture is in conjunction with the exhibition “Katrina Andry: Depose and Dispose (of),” now on view through March 12 at the Pensacola Museum of Art.

The Thursday, March 8 installment will be held at the Pensacola Museum of Art, 407 South Jefferson Street. A public reception will be held at 5:30 p.m. with the lecture at 6 p.m. The reception and lecture are free and open to the public. RSVPs are not required but seating is limited and available on a first-come basis.
