News & Events

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.
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, clay and wooden objects.

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

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.

Seven Colors of Rainbow
Market Basket
Saturday, March 10, 2018 from 10:00 AM – 5:00 PM
This class will be held at Taylor’s Collective
8197 Main Street
Ellicott City, MD

Ever wonder about the meaning of the colors of the rainbow? In this rainbow market basket, each color has meaning and intensity. For example, red is the hottest color and indicates passion, vitality. Red is followed by orange (practicality, control); yellow (wisdom, clarity of thought); green (growth, balance and health); blue (spirituality and divinity); Indigo (self-awareness, intuition), and violet (imagination, inspiration to artists).

I chose the color palette of rainbow for this colorful basket you can make in one day! The art of basket making can be easily learned by weaving this simple 10 X 14 X 7″ market basket. Learn techniques for making this memorable gift. Within one day, you will learn basic weaving skills:

using under/over weaving,
setting the handle,
follow a color pattern,
building up the sides,
adding a rim, and
lashing the rim.

If you have taken a market basket class before, you may practice following a color pattern and shaping your basket, using many colors and filling the base.

Skill Level: Beginner/ Advanced Beginner/All are invited to register.

Cost: $100

Refunds: There are no refunds. All materials for these classes are custom-made and ordered in advance. If you are unable to attend the class for any reason, you will receive a kit and all the supplies needed to make the basket.
Based on variability, availability and costs of materials and molds, all prices subject to change without notice.

All sales and proceeds from Charm City Baskets are dedicated to supporting the research of the nonprofit Center for Research in Basketry, Inc., (CRB). The CRB’s mission is to study the effects of social policy on the basket making industry, the work and personal lives of basket makers and their baskets, and to add scholarship and research to the profession.

The Maryland State Arts Council has awarded CRB Maryland Traditions grants for the past four years. CRB has used the funding to examine basketry tied to Native Americans on the Eastern Shore, Baltimore City, the lives of watermen, immigrants of the Western mountains, and the manufacturing of baskets in North East, Md. Research projects highlight the basketry of Southern Maryland, including tobacco-drying baskets, Maryland basket making guilds, Native American tribes on the western shore and the use of baskets for fishing and crabbing. 

Basket owners are invited to bring in their own handmade baskets to Kathi Beauchesne by appointment to have their pieces studied and documented.

In a race to save the disappearing craft of basket making, the CRB and its exhibits are part of a vital research effort by the Center for Research in Basketry to identify and record baskets throughout Maryland.

The Center holds basket making classes from March until October. Our CRB website, basketresearch.org is under revision and reorganization.

Should you have any questions, please contact Kathi Beauchesne at kobeauchesne@basketresearch.org.

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
