Stacey D. Miller will give an art talk/demonstration in the Depot Gallery on Sunday, April 3, beginning at 2:00 pm. She will discuss her printmaking techniques, with examples of various stages of the process to illustrate how the finished work of art is achieved. An exhibit of her work titled “Natural Impressions – Evolved” is in the Depot Gallery through April 29. Both the art talk and the gallery are free.
Though technically adept in a large array of media, Miller considers herself to be a mixed media artist with a primary focus in printmaking. “Using natural plant materials and a printmaking embossment technique similar to collagraphy, I draw together elements of color that define the initial mood of the work I’m creating” Miller says. “These layers of color are then embellished with subjective elements created in drawing media, lithography and etching processes. Once the character components are in place I add the finishing layers of color and/or collage to close each composition.” The resulting works are rich in imagery and vivid color.
Miller has exhibited her artwork nationally in over eighty solo, group, invited, permanent, and juried exhibitions. Stacey’s work is collected by educational institutes, companies and private collectors throughout the United States and abroad.
