Andrew Blanchard

Andrew Blanchard was raised on the Mississippi Gulf Coast and is now associate professor of printmaking and photography at Converse College in Spartanburg, South Carolina. His mixed-process prints on wood and paper have been included in more than one hundred juried exhibitions and have been collected in France, Bulgaria, South Korea, and the United Kingdom. Blanchard’s 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 magazines including 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.
