Andrew Blanchard, the Director of Studio Art and Associate Professor of Printmaking and Photography at Converse College, will present an exhibition in the gallery featuring the work he explored during his sabbatical in the Spring of 2018.

Blanchard is a proud graduate of Ole Miss’s MFA program and his work was recently added to the permanent collections of the Ogden Museum of Southern Art in New Orleans and the Mississippi Museum of Art in Jackson, and it is featured or forthcoming in publications including Ecotone, Electric Dirt, Printmakers Today, New American Paintings, the International Painting Annual (nos. 4 and 7), and the Oxford American, which in 2012 named him among the New Superstars of Southern Art.
It’s Like This, Though will run from September 6-27, 2018. Blanchard will present a Gallery Talk on September 6th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm.
The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sunday – Thursday 2:00-5:00pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
