A recent faculty in residence at SACI, Ellen Burchenal is an artist and instructor at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).  She has also directed MICA’s summer drawing & painting program in Sorrento, Italy for 17 years.  In March she exhibited her digital print series Festina Lente in Sorrento‘s Villa Fiorentino with the Fondazione Sorrento’s cultural initiative in an exhibition entitled Sorrento Again / Sorrento di Nuovo.  Based on original drawings started in Sorrento, the print series developed while Burchenal was at SACI in the fall of 2010. Ellen also exhibited her works this spring in SACI’s Maidoff Gallery.
