Greenwich YWCA hosts new art show
May 7, 2013 by James
The Gertrude G. White Gallery in Greenwich at the YWCA opened a new show over the past weekend of the works of Steven Miller, a native of Newtown who currently lives in houses both in Kent and New York City.
Miller is an abstract artist who received his early training at the Society of Creative Artists of Newtown and at a summer program at the Center for Creative Youth at Wesleyan University. He attended Drew University in Madison, New Jersey for his undergraduate studies and the Parsons New School For Design in New York City for his graduate endeavors.
His initial works were of landscapes and figures, based on techniques handed down through the centuries. More recently, Miller has concentrated on abstract art, based on the landscapes of a more traditional nature that he originally created.
According to Joan Carra, gallery coordinator, the recent exhibits at the gallery have featured diverse styles, media, and inspirations, and she found that Miller’s work fits in well with these displays. She added that she likes abstract and modern art and feels that Millers’ work is appropriate for the space, which draws people of many ages in from the community and serves as a public gathering place.
Miller’s work has been exhibited around Connecticut and as part of other galleries around the country and the world. It has been featured in several television series over the years too.
No doubt flyer printing and poster printing are being used to announce the show, which will continue until the end of the month.
