Lone Star College-Montgomery's Center for the Arts presents the artwork of Kate Borcherding with an exhibit titled Visual Thoughts on display August 31-September 24. There will be an artist’s reception with refreshments on Wednesday, September 16, from 12-2 p.m. in the Mary Matteson-Parrish Art Gallery (building D).
Houston artist and professor in printmaking and mixed media at Sam Houston State University, Borcherding’s work is a visual reflection to the immediate world and events happening around her.
“My work has always had a strong figurative focus,” said Borcherding. “I am interested in the figure for its gestural qualities, narrative possibilities, and psychological evocations. My work also explores narratives concerning social/political situations that have occurred within my observational range. These ideas are expressed through symbolism and the use of layered or collaged imagery.”
Borcherdingleads an active studio life in printmaking and often moves between mediums to challenge her approach to making prints and keeps her in the "what if?" questioning mode.
Linda Woodward, chair of LSC-Montgomery's art department, is excited to have Borcherding’s work on campus as well as hosting a sold-out printmaking workshop.
"Borcherding’s work is well known throughout the United States,” said Woodward. “I was most recently at an exhibition in Gatlinburg, TN, in July and noted that her work was featured at Arrowmont Craft School. She is a talented artist and instructor whom we are pleased to have with us in the Mary Matteson-Parrish Gallery."
Borcherding holds a master’s degree of fine arts in printmaking from Indiana University and post-graduate studies from Harvard University.
