Minor Memorial Library in Roxbury will open "Ken Cornet: New Works on Paper: Primitive + Abstract Collages," April 26, with a reception May 3 from 2 to 4 p.m.

The show will run through June 7.

Cornet, a Washington resident, was born and raised in New York, where he attended The Ethical Culture School and the highly selective High School of Music and Art.

He studied painting at the Art Students League, fashion design at the Fashion Institute of Technology, and earned a degree from the New York School of Interior Design.

From painting in preschool to designing textiles and surfaces in adulthood, Cornet returned to painting and creating art.

Cornet lives and works from his home, Red Studio Farm, in Washington's Nettleton Hollow, which he shares with his spouse, Joseph A. Mustich, who acts as his agent, licensing director and publicist.

The exhibit may be seen at the South Street library.
