The Milliken Art Gallery at Converse College will host "Labyrinth," a collection of new works by artist Glen Miller, February 26-March 16. A reception and a gallery talk with Miller is scheduled for March 5 at 6 p.m. The reception and the exhibit are open to the public and free of charge.
"I often draw on an Appalachian Tradition of storytelling, finding inspiration in personal experiences and wandering the local mountain trails," said Miller, who works in a variety of two and three dimensional media, often balancing intuitive markings, painterly surfaces and pictorial illusion within the images. He has received numerous awards for his work in regional exhibitions. His most recent solo exhibition was “Ruminations with a Charred Vine," a room-sized narrative drawing installation at the Greenville Fine Arts Center, 2007-2008.
The Northeast Tennessee native has a BFA in drawing and painting from East Tennessee State University and an MA in art and education from the University of South Florida. He currently teaches drawing and painting at Converse and is a member of the faculty of the Greenville County Museum of Art. He maintains a studio in the Pendleton Street Arts District of Greenville, South Carolina, and is represented locally by Hampton III Gallery.
