We are thrilled to announce the launch of our next gallery show! Launching September 1, this show brings together mother and daughter - Martha and Kaitlyn Miller - In Conversation. The show engages the viewers with works in a visual dialogue using color and dynamic impact while telling stories of place or self.
Martha Miller began drawing self-portraits at the age of fifteen. Though portraiture and work from the figure now comprise a significant body of her work, the self-portrait has long been her central method of expression. Miller has a strong reputation for her work in pencil, pastel, charcoal, and mixed media. For more than thirty years her work has appeared in over two-dozen invitational and juried exhibitions. She currently works in her home studio in Woolwich and recently retired from teaching at MECA through their Continuing Studies department.
Kaitlyn Miller has lived and worked year-round on Little Cranberry Island since 2008. She received her BFA in Ceramics from Maine College of Art in 2007 and has been a studio potter since, working summers at Islesford Pottery. With an enduring love for color and the island, she is most recently enjoying translating the beauty of her surroundings with acrylic paint on canvas.
We will be celebrating our official gallery opening at the upcoming First Friday Art Walk on September 2nd and will be open until 8pm - the perfect time to view the new show in person and meet our artists! We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy this striking show.
