From February 10 to 28, 2014, the exhibition “Kimberly Miller: 4 Seasons” will be on view at Mary Baldwin University’s Hunt Gallery. A current resident of Bridgewater, where she also maintains a studio, Miller graduated from Mary Baldwin University (Mary Baldwin) in 1982 with a BA in business and communications. She later enrolled in studio art courses at James Madison University (JMU), earning a BFA in painting in 2006. Since then she has exhibited her work across Virginia at a range of venues, from Madison Hall at JMU to the Virginia General State Assembly in Richmond, to Bridgewater College.
“With no central focal point in [the] paintings, [my] design gives a balance to the composition while allowing the viewer to move freely throughout the painting,” Miller said about her work, which is inspired by the changing seasons. “[I] use found plant material from each season as a technique for applying paint to canvas. The process of layering detailed patterns and designs captures a variety of edges to define the season.”
A reception will be held for the artist 4:30–6 p.m., February 10 in Hunt Gallery. The public is invited to attend.
Hunt Gallery is dedicated to the exhibition of contemporary work in all media by regionally and nationally recognized artists. The gallery is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. during the college’s academic year. Hunt Gallery’s schedule for the 2013–2014 academic year can be found online.
