From the Liriodendron Foundation:
The Liriodendron Foundation is pleased to announce an art exhibit of the works of Ellen Corddry during the month of November in the Gallery located at 502 W. Gordon Street, Bel Air, MD 21014. A reception with the artist will be open to the public on Sunday, November 2, 2014 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Ms Corddry will be demonstrating her woodcut technique. Musician, Ashton Fletcher, will also be playing during the reception.
Ellen Corddry works primarily in watercolors and woodcut. Often she combines the two media, juxtaposing the heavy black lines of the woodcut with the translucence of watercolor. She likes 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.
Ms Corddry has exhibited extensively throughout Maryland. Her work has been featured in several shows sponsored by local galleries and the business community. She is the recipient of numerous awards.
Ms Corddry has illustrated the book City on the Sand published in 1991 and the Jim Richardson Boat Building Book published in 1985.
