One the of Barbara Henriksen Andrews’ paintings on display at the Fishers Town Hall.

Geist resident and artist Barbara Henriksen Andrews has been proudly showing off her latest exhibition in the Fishers Town Hall art gallery over the summer. The show, “Reflections of the Midwest,” is a group of over three dozen oil paintings depicting Midwest flowers, corn fields, barns and silos, and even a Midwest thunderstorm brewing over railroad tracks. But something very recognizable in her exhibition is the paintings of sunsets — at Geist!

Andrews, who graduated from St. Olaf College in Minnesota, moved to Indiana after college to study at Butler University and wound up staying in Indiana. She later married and moved to Geist. Today, she is an art educator at New Palestine High School and enjoys spending time with her husband, kids, and grandkids at their home on Geist.

“Our entire family enjoys the lakeside living, but I especially enjoy the sunsets so I started adding them to my Midwest collection,” says Barbara.
The artist likes to snap photos of sunsets from her back deck overlooking Geist, then she heads to the downstairs to her favorite place to paint – the furnace room! “Its quiet with no distractions!” laughs Barbara.

The Geist art teacher was named the 2007 Indiana Art Educator of the Year and the National Art Education Association Western Region Teacher of the Year in 2008. These are just two of several awards she has picked up over the years for her work.

If you missed Barbara’s exhibition, you can pick up a pack of her “Reflections of the Midwest” note cards for $5. Proceeds from the note card sales benefit the Lutheran World Relief.

You can contact Barbara via email at bhandrews3@gmail.com.
