August's exhibition at Spitzer Art Center: Ashley Sauder Miller - "Collect, Contain"
Gallery reception Friday, August 1 from 5:00 - 8:00 pm with refreshments and live music!
Gallery hours each Saturday in August: 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
Ashley Sauder Miller holds a Master of Fine Arts from James Madison University. And her large, bold, abstract paintings won first place this year at Art in the Park, Staunton!
She says of her work "My mixed media work is both playful, simply about the joy of painting and mark making, and emotive of deeper meaning brewing beneath the surface. Imagery, color, line and shapes reference both significant experience and memory and also the repetitive, commonplace occurrences of daily life. I draw inspiration from a wide range of sources: Abstract Expressionist painters, my children's mark-making and drawings, design, objects and color from significant memory, Biblical text, and the body. I work from my home studio and stay home with our four young children."
