Honorable Mention – West River Sunrise
Maryland’s Native Landscapes Juried Competition Adkins Arboretum, Ridgely, Maryland, February 24 – March 26, 2010
Juried by Carla Massoni, director of the Carla Massoni Gallery, Chestertown, Maryland
Borchardt’s “West River Sunrise” caught Massoni’s eye because it’s so unusual. The artist inserted rows of rolled-up photographs of a sunrise into the compartments of a printer’s type box, making a kind of “sampling” of the bands of color created by apricot, pink and blue light reflected below the shoreline trees. “I love what she did,” Massoni said. “She’s given us something new to think about. It asks me to look at it differently and think about the macro and the micro.”
