    - Both galleries of the Allegany Arts Council, Cumberland, MD, host artwork from local talent.
    “Fired Up, Melted Down” in the Saville Gallery features work from Ed Coffey (Cumberland, MD) and Elizabeth Braun (Slanesville,WV). These two artists create in distinct media; each of which involves shape transformation with heat and manipulation of those melted substances.
    Mr Coffey, an animation artist in his early career, has also worked in watercolor, mixed media, and acrylic painting. More recently, he has taken to melting plastic onto wire frames then adding color to create various shapes and depths. As Coffey says, “My current work involves organic, abstract shapes (melted plastic), with an outside irregular perimeter to emphasize the biological nature of the imagery. I'm also rebelling against the ‘tyranny of the rectangle’ (frames) which, to me, can imprison a work of expression. Years of working in effects animation have no doubt influenced my reoccurring theme of movement and rhythm. If my pieces look like they want to crawl off the wall, so much the better.”
    Ms Braun, a glass designer, fabricator and teacher, began glass art study at the Beaux Arts school in Aix en Provence (’81). “Elizabeth’s Glassworks” is her studio business which specializes in commissioned pieces. Originally in Old Town Alexandria, VA, it is now located in Slanesville, WV. Braun says, “Now that I am working out in the country, out of my barn surrounded by mountains, my work is reflecting the beauty of nature around me, and I've started casting tree¬-like sculptures, and what I call "messages from the river”. Ms Braun works glass in many ways which include fusing, beveling, torch working, glassblowing, casting, and pate¬ de verre. As she says,”In my "free" time I enjoy creating primarily lost wax sculptural pieces. … I consider my sculptural pieces to be visual poetry. I am keenly interested in emotions, the energy we all share, the power of words and symbols.
    In the Schwab Mountain Maryland Gallery, Angela Hedderick’s (Cumberland, MD) paintings, primarily works in oil, showcase the natural beauty of our area and snapshots of its people.
    Mrs. Hedderick with a life-long interest in art, instead began a business career out of college. She continued to draw and paint while working as an actuarian and received her first commission in ’98. Hedderick retired from the office for new ventures in farming, gardening, and childraising. Ever since her children began school, Hedderick was able to nuture her artistic talent and devotes a lot of time and effort to stretching her boundaries. As she says, “There is always something new to learn and try…When I’m painting my own works I lean heavily toward rural themes: local landscapes, still lifes from the garden or the orchard, my kids, and my neighbor’s Jersey cows. [ ] I have been working to improve my skills in portraiture, because the human face is an amazing challenge. Youth, age, skin tone and character marks; every face is a unique landscape with a story to tell.”
    Both exhibitions run from May 7 through June 4th with a public Reception on Saturday, May 14, from 6:00-8:00pm. The Allegany Arts Council’s galleries are located at 9 N. Centre St, downtown Cumberland, MD. The building is accessible and is open from 11:00am to 5:00pm Tuesday through Saturday.
