We’re On DCist’s Agenda!





We found a nice little write-up in DC’s popular local blog DCist about our featured artist, Frances Borchardt. DCist blogger Kerrin Kastorf reviewed Borchardt’s brand new show, “Prints in Pieces: Views of South County, open now in The Art League Gallery. 

“We all know that Maryland is blessed with one of the most beautiful natural features in the world — the Chesapeake Bay — and Frances Borchardt takes full advantage of the artistic bounty it provides in her upcoming solo exhibition Prints In Pieces: Views of South County. Borchardt photographically documents the everyday life of her hometown south of Annapolis and then does something that no one else does: creates a sort of montage using old type cases that adds an interesting, and certainly unique, look to her work. Head on over to The Art League on Thursday to meet the artist, see her work and hear some bluegrass from The Higher Ground String Band. 6:30 to 8 p.m”

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
