Ellen Cornett at Artists & Makers Studios in Rockville

Artists & Makers Studios on Parklawn Drive in Rockville will host Ellen Cornett for the month of April. 

The exhibit runs from April 3rd through April 24th at Artists & Makers Studios, with an opening reception on Friday, April 5th, 5 – 8pm. 

Artists & Makers Studios presents Once Upon a Time, Words and Pictures, illustrations from recently published books by artist, Ellen Cornett. 

Cornett re-wrote these familiar stories, illustrating them in colored pencil and carbon pencil; Hush Little Baby, The House That Jack Built, The Fisherman and the Flounder and Stone Soup. In collaboration with Cornett, professional model and muse, Harry Edgel, posed for the human characters in the drawings. With his bottomless costume trunk and a dancer’s expressiveness, Edgel was instrumental in bringing the characters in Cornett’s illustrations to life. 

Enjoy additional exhibits “Earthbound” with Resident Artists – on view in the Gallery Hall, along with nineteen Gallery 209 Member Artists exhibiting their latest work. Shop and support local working artists, makers, and professionals.
