Youth inspired exhibit on display

For Immediate Release:  May 27, 2014

BLOOMSBURG — Works by Chad Andrews, instructor of printmaking and two-dimensional design at Bloomsburg University, will be featured from June 12 to Aug. 28 in Haas Gallery of Art. A reception will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 28, with an artist’s lecture at 1:15 p.m.

The exhibit, “Earthmovers and Apple Blossoms,” is representative of Andrews’ artwork in various mediums, techniques, imagery and concepts.

Andrews believes the variety of his artwork, which has been described as “representational, pop, graffiti, conceptual, installation, abstract and contemporary,” is inspired by his frequent moves as a child and his observations and participation in the world around him.

Before coming to Bloomsburg, Andrews taught at the University of Pennsylvania and served as director of visual arts at the Interlochen (Mich.) Center for Arts. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in studio art from Kutztown University and a Master of Fine Arts in printmaking from the University of Pennsylvania.

He maintains a private studio in the Pajama Factory, Williamsport, and his works have been featured in exhibitions in Pennsylvania, Michigan, New York and Virginia.

Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. The university, celebrating 175 years of excellence in 2014, serves approximately 10,000 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in the colleges of Education, Business, Liberal Arts and Science and Technology.
