The EACC Gallery presents Works on Paper, an exhibition by EACC art instructor and artist Remy Miller of Lakeland, Tennessee. The exhibit will run through Friday, October 30th.
Artist and instructor Remy Miller has been teaching various art courses at EACC since fall 2019. He is a Faculty Emeritus and former dean at Memphis College of Art where he taught drawing and painting for 30 years. Born in Bridgeport, Connecticut, Miller spent his childhood in Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Painting from the University of Connecticut in 1981. In 1982-1984, he attended Bowling Green State University in Ohio where he earned a Master of Fine Arts degree in Painting.
Miller's exhibit contains pieces of his artwork through the past few years. The diversity of his work is intentional, and it is important for Miler to have a range of subjects, approaches, and media in his practice. "I pursue imagery that is important to me at the moment and it shifts amongst the modes and subjects in which I am interested," said Miller. "This allows me to explore a wide variety of images and materials that expand my skills and the expressive potential of my work," he added.
Remy Miller has achieved regional and national recognition as an artist with numerous exhibitions in a wide variety of galleries, alternative spaces, schools, and museums including Christian Brothers University, Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, Rhodes College, Memphis Center for Contemporary Art, Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, University of Missouri, Missouri State University, Central Missouri State University, Columbia College, Adams State College in Colorado, Toledo Museum of Art, Bowling Green State University, Haggin Museum in Stockton, California, Northwest Mississippi Community College, Itawamba Community College in Mississippi, Arkansas Arts Center, and many more. In addition, Miller has been an artist-in-residence at the Van Burren College of Art in Ballyvaughan, Ireland and the McNamara Foundation on Westport Island, Maine.
