Painted Mornings: The Works of Janvier Miller


The Vero Beach Museum of Art is pleased to present the works of noteworthy Florida Artist Janvier Miller in its Schumann Florida Gallery exhibition PAINTED MORNINGS: The Works of Janvier Miller opening on Saturday, March 6 and continuing through Sunday, April 11, 2004. (right: Pic-a-Pot, 2001, Acrylic on Canvas, 42 x 46 inches. Title image is a detail from the cover of an announcement for the exhibition.)

PAINTED MORNINGS is an insightful tour through the artist's world. Viewers can not only experience Miller's perception of everyday objects and places, but also get a glimpse of a master painter's creative process. Miller's work may be based in Western still-life tradition but her unique approach is to transform familiar, emotionally-charged objects such as tea pots, shoes, paint cans, garden tools, and her own pottery into works of art with the playfulness, freedom, and mastery of the mature artist.

In describing Miller's paintings Christine Temin of the Boston Globe stated: "These still-lifes aren't all that still." The exhibition features approximately two dozen of Miller's works in acrylic on canvas.

Miller grew up in Bronxville, NY and received her M.F.A. from Syracuse University. She furthered her education in Italy at the Scuola delle belle Arte. From 1982 to 1995 Miller co-owned the Lange-Miller Gallery in Chatham, MA, and was a partner in the Ocean Drive Gallery in Vero Beach, FL from 1998 to 2001. Working primarily in acrylic, Miller's large-scale canvases are marked by bold color, textural patterns and tactile brushwork. Miller's work has been featured in exhibitions throughout New England and Florida, as well as in museum and private collections.
