SHOW DATES: Saturday, September 30th,

Gallery - Steven
Miller Solo Exhibition The gallery closed, but the
ONE LOCAL ARTIST AND ONE BUSINESS EMBRACE THE CHANGING
MARKET IN MICHIGAN.
As art galleries close all around the state, Royal Oak
artist, Steven Miller, collaborates with a local business,
State Farm, to find new patrons
and new possibilities.
Open now through September, State Farm is featuring a
retrospective of Millers work titled Ghost
Gallery. The State Farm is located in the previous
home of the District Arts Gallery in essence, the
gallery is gone, but the art remained. The first of this
two-part exhibit is open to the public (free of charge)
from 9am 5pm, Monday through Friday, for the rest
of this month. The show will re-open in September with
the second installment which will feature projected
(or, ghosted, if you will) images of the work being made.
Millers paintings are self-described as wanderlust.
Only this journey is through his mind. When faced with
a blank canvas, Miller never knows where itll end
but he knows itll go somewhere. Anywhere.
Hes up for the
journey! And, when he looks back at a finished piece,
he can always see snippets from where he was (at that
whether they are real, imagined
or felt. With a background in design and art direction,
Steven uses bold color and creative composition to help
push these stories even farther.
