Karen Jelenfy's art encompasses painting, sculpture and drawings and uses common materials such as cloth and clay in works that cover a range of meanings from protection to withdrawal. Her use of everyday materials has been regarded as "both a salute to creativity outside of art and a challenge to people who believe they are not artists." Jelenfy, who lives in Clinton in Prince George's County and is an art teacher and curator as well as an artist, currently has an exhibit of her work at Harmony Hall Regional Center in Fort Washington. The exhibit is titled "Faith and Vertigo," and through it, Jelenfy says, "I hope to show that creation as a daily activity is nearer and more available to us than we generally think."

At Harmony Hall Regional Center, 10701 Livingston Road, Fort Washington. 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturdays, through Sept. 30. For information call 301-292-8331.
