Natalie Miller Gallery Opening at Edmond Fine Arts Institute, Thursday, January 6th
Join us at the Edmond Fine Arts Gallery, 27 E. Edwards St, for a solo show featuring local artist Natalie Miller on Thursday, January 6th from 5pm to 7pm.
Artist Natalie Miller is best known for her acrylic paintings’ vibrant use of color on canvas. Her large and small scale works explore linear abstractions, bold color combinations, and the playful colliding of geometric forms. She graduated from Oklahoma Christian in 2007 with a BFA in Graphic Design and emphasis in Illustration. Her innate ability to manage color tone stems from over a decade working in the graphic and textile design field. She has recently explored a merging of visual graphics, vivid line work and nature that references her native Chickasaw heritage. She connects her past to her present on a visual journey drawing on the language of early and current textiles as well as her natural attraction to saturated colors. Her line work is pure in its steady hand and her color curation brings a playful voice that sets her apart. She leaves behind a contemporary renewal of her own interpretation, leading the viewer on a journey from one canvas to the next.
The Edmond Fine Arts Institute Gallery is open daily for public viewing Monday – Thursday or by appointment. Monthly gallery exhibits are a program of the Edmond Fine Arts Institute, with support from presenting sponsor, Price Mortgage Group, LLC. FAI is Edmond’s nonprofit community arts organization providing year-round visual and performing art classes for children and adults and the Art in Schools Program for 3rd and 4th grade students in Edmond Public Schools.
