    "'Art of the State' also features artists like Ellwood Derricks...who dives into painting."

The Patriot News

    "Derricks' work is steeped in the interaction between its conceptual and physical qualities. Much of it is centered around a theme, character or line of text drawn from classical literature."

Art Matters

    "Ellwood Derricks, whose work caught my eye at concurrent juried shows at the Lancaster and Harrisburg art shows, has a mysterious piece titled "Lotus Eaters" in this exhibit. Architectural elements in shades of burnt umber and grayed ceruelan have a cine colle newspaper image of heavenly angels next to an open door with an ominous and darkened interior. In script across the bottom it reads, "I am waiting by your door." Approach with trepidation, something seems out of place."
