Hill Center Galleries Spotlight Series: Ellen Cornett’s Once Upon a Time

Monday, March 1 - Friday, April 16

As Hill Center Galleries approaches its tenth year of celebrating the work of regional artists, we will be spotlighting some of the outstanding artists who have exhibited with us. We kick off with a virtual exhibit featuring the charcoal and pencil drawings of Ellen Cornett. Click here to view the full exhibition

“In meticulously detailed drawings, I create layered, ambiguous narratives. Through my fascination with transformation, artifice, and disguise—often themes or vignettes plucked from folk tales and stories—I build unsettling scenes that gain energy from unresolved endings. In uncanny depictions of humans and animals, absurd possibilities lurk behind everyday moments. People and animals wear masks, discover supernatural powers, and interact in ways that may delight viewers or upend expectations. Carbon pencil and charcoal allow me to create work that is clearly hand-drawn, but realistic enough to be disorienting. My art expresses my own unanswered questions about identity, memory, and the stories that profoundly affect our lives.”
