Drawing and Painting Instructor Andrea Heimer in New American Paintings and Solo Exhibition in NYC

February 15, 2018

Andrea Joyce Heimer, an instructor in OCAC's Drawing and Painting department, is included in the newest Pacific Coast issue of New American Paintings (#133). The issue is out now and available for purchase online. You can get a glimpse by clicking here.

New American Paintings is a juried exhibition-in-print. Each museum-quality issue results from a highly selective juried competition and presents the work of forty painters. Thousands of artists enter our competitions every year, but only a limited number make it through the jurying process. We work closely with renowned curators in order to select those artists whose work deserves to be seen by a wider audience.

Additionally, Andrea's solo show of new paintings, Fountainhead, opened on February 8, 2018, at Nicelle Beauchene in New York City. According to Andrea, this work "imagines a series of hypothetical narratives staged in the future which address my conflicted decision about finding my biological parents." The show is up through March 11, 2018. 

Andrea is a visual artist and writer who received her MFA from New Hampshire Institute of Art. Recently, Andrea has had two solo exhibitions in NYC at Nicelle Beauchene Gallery and Hometown Gallery, and her work was included in the 2017 Istanbul Biennial. She has exhibited in Italy, China, England, Germany and Denmark. Andrea's work has been written about in Art Forum, Art in America, the New York Times, Vice, and the Huffington Post. In 2016, one of her short stories was developed into a film, Mildred and the Dying Parlor. Andrea has taught courses and workshops in artist professional development, and the figure and narrative. She is a member of SOIL Artist Run Gallery in Seattle.
