Events

While working in very different styles and media, local artists, Ellen Corddry, with her woodcut prints and watercolors,  and Kathy Swan, with her ceramics, both depict the beauty of nature in their work. Their show,  “In Sight: Observations of Our Natural World” will run at Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City from May 29-June 24.

A reception to meet the artists on Saturday, June 9 from 4-6 p.m. Corddry will give a woodblock cutting demo at 4:30 pm and Swan will give a talk on ceramic techniques at 5:00 pm.

Sadaf Asad will exhibit a group of paintings that highlight the beautiful and intricate artistic style of the Mughal Taj Dynasty, which ruled most of the Indian subcontinent from the late 7th to early 18th centuries. This area included what is today Asad’s native Pakistan.

The show runs from May 1-27. A reception with refreshments and an opportunity to meet the artist will be held on Saturday, May 5 from 3-5 p.m.

Asad has been influenced by the rich cultural and artistic life the Mughals brought to India and the rich jewel colors and interesting patterns in her work represent Asad’s interpretation of this interesting and exotic artistic period.  She works mostly in charcoal, pastel and ink.

 

 

Photographs by David Roe will be on exhibit for the month of April at Artists’ Gallery in Ellicott City. The show, titled “An Eclectic View of the World” will run from March 27 through April 29 with an opening reception on April 7 from 4-6 p.m.

“I believe art should produce a reaction, and the mission of my photos is to elicit an emotion from viewers, whether positive or negative. Anything else is simply a snapshot, not art. I try to communicate to the viewer by making a photograph my own,” commented Roe.
Roe attempts to communicate how he sees his subject, whether a person, place or inanimate object and to call attention to the stories that are commonly overlooked. He finds beauty or interest in any kind of subject and has an eclectic photographic style.

“ESSENTIAL ELEMENTS: CLAY AND WATER” ON DISPLAY AT ARTISTS’ GALLERY IN ELLICOTT CITY FOR GUEST ARTIST SHOW IN MARCH. CLAY WORK BY WINNIE COGGINS AND WATERCOLOR PAINTINGS BY KAREN NORMAN February 27 – March 25, 2018

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.
Coggins work can be seen at: www.winniecoggins.com

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.

ELLEN CORDDRY TO EXHIBIT “WOODCUTS AND WATERCOLORS” FOR MONTH OF JUNE AT ARTISTS’ GALLERY IN OLD ELLICOTT CITY IN CONJUNCTION WITH

ELLICOTT CITY ART HOP ON JUNE 10

 

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
