December 2017 - January 2018

Telluride Arts’ HQ gallery in Telluride, Colorado presents, “Imprint,” an exhibit by Andrea Martens. The Art Walk opening reception will be held Thursday, January 4, 5-8 p.m.

In her new body of work, Andrea Martens continues her ongoing exploration of mixed media printmaking, focusing on the complexities surrounding the human impact on the oceans and their inhabitants in contemporary industrial society. In this work, Martens furthers her investigation of the human-animal relationship and issues of open space and confinement, as well as physical and psychological space.

“I am not only vested in the content and form of visual work, but also in the role of the artist within our societal context, and the artist’s response through their art to the world around them.”

Andrea Martens is a visual artist focused in mixed media printmaking, living and working in Durango, Colorado. Andrea received her MFA in Printmaking from Colorado State University, and received her Post-Baccalaureate Certificate from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.  She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Virginia Tech with minors in art and biology.  In addition to creating in the studio, she teaches art at Fort Lewis College and in the University of Maine at Augusta’s Distance Education Program. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. 

The show runs through January 2018 at Telluride Arts HQ Gallery, located at 135 W Pacific in Telluride, Colorado. Open daily from 12-6 pm or by appointment.
