Ms. Wong is a founding member of the Longyear Gallery and has been the subject of many one woman, and group shows in numerous galleries and venues in upstate New York and New York City. She has been the recipient of numerous grants and recognitions, most notably the NYS Council of the Arts DEC Grant administered by the Roxbury Arts Group and sponsored by the Historical Society of the Town of Middletown, a NEA fellowship, and a teacher/artist residency at Skidmore College.
In 2009 Ellen presented the multi-media exhibit ‘Face of Farming’ at the Roxbury Arts Center, funded by a DEC grant she won that year, which told the story of a working Catskill landscape, through video, audio, photographs, watercolors and formal oil portraits. It documented five of the last operating dairy farming families in the area, to memorialize the art of working the land and celebrate their commitment to a fast disappearing lifestyle.
Ellen currently co-hosts ‘The Farm Hour,’ a weekly talk show about local agriculture on WIOX, 91.3 FM.
