Reception: Saturday, April 8 from 2pm to 4pm

Ellen Cornett’s charcoal and graphite drawings reveal the humorous and serious, often tragic undertones of fairy and folk tales. By using well-recognized sources, she manipulates characters into odd vignettes of conflict, misunderstanding, and relationships gone awry. In addition to these finished pieces, Cornett will create a large charcoal drawing on paper along the gallery wall aligning with other pieces in the show—a little whimsical, a little challenging, and a little dark.

Visit her in the gallery to discuss and see the work in progress. She will also be documenting her process with daily reports on her blog (http://www.ellencornett.com/blog/ ) and social media.

Gallery Hours:

  • Sunday through Saturday: 10am to 5pm

Montpelier Arts Center is located at 9652 Muirkirk Rd., Laurel, MD.
