Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City will present the work of a long-time alumna, clay artist Winnie Coggins, and award-winning watercolor artist Karen Norman for its guest artist show, “Essential Elements: Clay and Water” that will run from February 27 through March 25, 2018. There will be a reception with wine and refreshments on Sunday, March 11, from 3-5 p.m., when visitors will have the opportunity to meet and chat with both guests artists as well as other gallery members.

Winnie Coggins has been working in clay since 1976. “I glaze and fire my work in oxidation, layering colors on form, using slabs as a canvas. Impressions of found objects build a vocabulary of images. As a cook and gardener, I enjoy making forms for food and flowers, bringing art to the dining table. Working with clay is a serious addiction which I contracted many years ago; it continues to draw me in with the promise of the next pot,” she commented. Coggins’ work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in many venues, including the Maryland Federation of Art, Artists’ Gallery, Circle Galleries, Columbia Arts Center, the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center and the Potters Build of Baltimore.

Karen Norman’s career in art began in color lithography, after she received her MFA at the University of Maryland. She soon began to explore the subtleties and possibilities of working in watercolor and has continued to create award-winning work in this medium for many years. In addition to painting, she illustrated a text book on psychology that her husband wrote several years ago. “Painting puts me in a place that is thoughtful and contemplative,” commented Norman. “It never fails that my view changes and expands as I work, a process that is surprising to me and fuels not only my passion to paint but also my desire to teach and see creativity and joy ignited in my students. “ Norman is a signature member of the Baltimore Water Color Society, the Potomac Valley Watercolorists and past president of the Olney Art Association.

Artists’ Gallery, on Main Street in Ellicott City, will present “Woodcuts and Watercolors” by local artist Ellen Corddry for the month of June. The show will run from May 29-June 25 with an opening reception, on Saturday, June 10 from 6-10 p.m. at the gallery, located at 8197 Main Street, Ellicott City.

The reception will be in conjunction with the Ellicott City Art Hop on June 10, when the art galleries and art-related shops in town will stay open later into the evening and host various events at their locations. At Artists’ Gallery, Corddry will demonstrate the process of designing a woodcut, transferring the design to the wood block, and cutting the wood. She will also make a few small prints on the spot. The demo will take place from 6:30-7:00 p.m..

A graduate of Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Corddry often combines watercolors and woodcuts, juxtaposing the heavy, black lines of the woodcut with the translucence of watercolor. “I like the flexibility and immediacy of watercolor, which can be mixed with collage, pastels and crayons for added depth and texture. The woodcut allows for the pleasure of cutting into wood and the making of prints,” commented Corddry.

Corddry’s work was recently featured in a pop-up exhibit on the Maryland Public Television show, “Artworks” (www.mpt.org/programs/artworks-season5/) and she has exhibited extensively throughout Maryland. She has also illustrated several books.

Her work will be displayed in the gallery’s featured artist space on the lower floor and the remainder of the space will feature work by the other Artists’ Gallery members.

Artists’ Gallery is a member-owned gallery representing media that include oil, watercolor, collage, acrylic, pastel, charcoal, traditional photography, hand-colored photography, digital painting, stained glass, wood-cut prints, mixed media, quilts and wooden objects.

Hours: Tues-Wed. 11 a.m.-6 p.m.; Thurs.-Sat., 11 a.m.-8 p.m.; Sun., 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Closed on Monday

George Edwards will be playing the guitar and doing caricatures.

George Edwards grew up in a family of artists – mother, father, sister, brother. The last 3 were art teachers. He attended MICA on a full scholarship and graduated ‘cum laude’. George did not have a major, but got a degree in multimedia so he could diversify with painting, printmaking, and photography, with a lot of life sculpture. His interests are diversified between traditional, detailed realism; the Surreal school; and pure abstraction. George’s first job was sketching people at Irv Finifter’s Face Place in Ocean City Maryland, where he learned to do portraits and caricatures. From then on it was a series of places for doing the face from life and photograph: Roger Webb’s studio in Lake George New York, Jinx Harris’ Art Shows in major malls from Philadelphia to New York, then his own stand at Towsontowne Centre, Harundale Mall and finally White Marsh Mall. During that time, he became a member of the Art Gallery of Fells Point where he was the top moneymaker for 5 years. Now he operates out of his studio at 58 Skipjack Court in Essex; he does a lot of traveling to events to sketch caricatures live at weddings, birthdays, etc.

It should be noted that before his career as an artist took off, George developed a fascination with guitar and it has since been a life-long endeavor; he now owns seven guitars – Gibsons, Fenders and Martins.

George prefers to be reached by email, geoedwards5@gmail.com.

George will be also be playing Steampunk Artist Maury Dickinson’s guitars.
