March 19, 2019 Lisa Muller
Rescheduled from last November, Lisa Muller will share images of the twisting path a painting often takes on its way to completion. Ideas of mess making, geometry, the gift of blind alleys, and accidental meaning will be elaborated on, along with the importance of consistent methods that insure the unexpected. Surface depth, texture, layered color and translucency are some of the traits she pursues in her work. Her figurative imagery borders on the surreal, with elements of abstraction and whimsy.
Lisa has been developing her current style of painting for five years. Prior to painting she was a full time ceramic artist creating large scale murals, sculpture, and a line of ceramic tiles for wholesale across the country. An MFA from Tyler School of Art prepared her to teach all skill levels. Currently she is an adjunct professor at Albright College and has exhibited nationally from Alaska to Florida.
April 16, 2019 Nancy Bea Miller
Artist and Author Nancy Bea Miller will talk about for her still lives and figurative work. She will discuss her work and career to date, art-making despite the various struggles of life, that in her case includes a child born with profound disabilities, writing and teaching.
She writes that “The richness of the world is almost overwhelming, crowding in at us from all sides and using every sense organ to make itself known. In my art I process this sensory overload by simplifying and focusing, by gathering up and presenting little stories people and objects tell as they relate to each other visually in space and time. when I paint or photograph, I create a picture of stillness pregnant with impending movement: a moment held in suspension, inviting the viewer’s contemplation Unexpected or inexplicable details in an image may trip up the viewer’s accustomed visual progression causing them to stop and look again. “
Ms. Miller is an Adjunct Professor in Art History and Studio Arts at Montgomery County Community College and at Harcum College, is on the CE Faculty at The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and teaches at the Main Line Art Center. In addition to her career in art, she is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in numerous publications. Ms. Miller has degrees from the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts and the University of Pennsylvania. She is represented by Watson Gallery in Stonington, Maine, F.A.N. Gallery in Philadelphia, PA and by Gallery 222 in Malvern, PA.
