About the Event
Black Creatives Meetup is an initiative that holds space for Black artists, makers & creatives to gather and gain artistic & professional development. Read more about our Black Creatives Meetup program here!
Katrina Andry (b. 1981, New Orleans, LA, USA) challenges the ideology of individualism by examining inequalities and resulting degradation as the result of our color-based prejudices. She argues the belief in individualism allows Americans to turn a blind eye to inequality, suggesting barriers to well-being lie with the individual and not also within our social structures, in spite of documentation of the collective experiences of these groups and data on outcomes of disfavored groups.
Andry earned an MFA in Printmaking from Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA. She has participated in exhibitions at the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Katonah Museum of Art in Katonah, NY, and Marc Straus Gallery, New York, NY, as well as had solo exhibitions at The Halsey Institute in Charleston, SC and the Hammonds House Museum in Atlanta, GA. In 2021, Andry was a participating artist in Prospect, a triennial held throughout different venues all over New Orleans and received coverage in the New York Times that coincided with the opening. She was listed in the September 2012 issue of Art in Print magazine as one of the top 50 printmakers.
Andry’s work can be found in the prominent art collections of 21C Museum, Saint Louis, MO, the Petrucci Family Foundation in Asbury, NJ, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, LA. Andry currently lives and works in New Orleans where she maintains a studio.
