Adriane Herman, Associate Professor
Adriane Herman has had solo exhibitions at Adam Baumgold Gallery (New York), Western Exhibitions (Chicago), the Kansas City Jewish Museum of Contemporary Art, The Center for Maine Contemporary Art, Interlochen Center for the Arts, and Rose Contemporary in Portland, Maine, where her recent exhibition, “Finish Lines,” focused on the marks we make when crossing accomplishments off our “to do” lists. She has shown in numerous group exhibitions at venues including The Dalarnas Museum (Falun, Sweden), the Portland Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, The Chapel Street Gallery at Yale University, The Ulrich Museum (Wichita), The H&R Block Artspace at KCAI, La Esquina, and The International Print Center New York.
Herman has received grants from the Maine Arts Commission, the Charlotte Street Foundation, and the Avenue of the Arts Foundation. Her work has been written about in journals including The New Yorker, Art on Paper, Art in Print, The Kansas City Star, The New Art Examiner, and Art New England, artforum.com, and the following books: A Survey of Contemporary Printmaking; Printmaking at the Edge; Imprint of Place: Maine Printmaking 1800-2005; The Best of Printmaking; Printmaking: A Complete Guide to Materials and Processes; and Thomas Kinkade: The Artist in the Mall.
Herman’s independent efforts to normalize consumption of fine art dovetail with collaborative curatorial efforts such as Slop Art and projects she has undertaken with her students at Maine College of Art and Kansas City Art Institute. Herman holds a B.A. from Smith College and an M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as a Level II certificate in the Wilton Method of Cake Decorating. She has been a visiting artist at over fifty institutions and been an artist in residence at the Baie Sainte Marie Artist & Family Compound in Nova Scotia; Kriti Gallery in Varanasi, India; and (2014-2015) The Charlotte Street Foundation. Herman’s work is in such collections as The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art, The Progressive Corporation, The Ulrich Museum of Art, The Walker Art Center, and Yale University Art Gallery.
