Today I found out that The Wheat Field will be included in the 15th annual Art Competition at Adkins Arboretum. The theme of the competition—Discovering the Native Landscapes of Maryland’s Eastern Shore—celebrates the Arboretum’s mission of conservation. The juror for this year’s show is John Ruppert, Full Professor of Art in the Department of Art at the University of Maryland, College Park, and the first Distinguished Visitor in Washington College’s Sandbox initiative. The exhibit will open February 3rd and will run through March 28th with a reception on Saturday, February 15th from 3 to 5 p.m. For more information, visit the Adkins Arboretum website, or call 410-634-2847.
The Wheat Field was shot with my iPhone on a return visit from Adkins Arboretum last May. I had just completed installation of my solo exhibit there, and was inspired by the late day beauty of the fields that surround the Arboretum. The Wheat Field was shot with the app Pro 645 and processed entirely on my iPhone with the apps AutoStitch, FilterStorm, Vintage Scene and Laminar Pro. The final archival pigment print is 23×14″ and printed on bamboo-fiber paper.
