MANCHESTER - Artist David Miller will give a gallery talk at Southern Vermont Arts Center at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 3 in Yester House. He will offer a visual retrospective of his 50-year career and will talk about his development as an artist.

Miller lives and works near Saratoga Springs, N.Y. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions and was honored in 2001 with a retrospective exhibition at the Tang Museum. His paintings are displayed in several museums and are in numerous corporate and private collections in the U.S. and abroad. In addition, he has received major grant awards from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts. In his essay from the Tang exhibit catalog, noted writer and poet John Yau wrote, "One of the strengths of Miller's art is his ability to embody complex, often paradoxical feelings within a single work. His paintings don't yield a single narrative, but many. One feels that the layering Miller uses isn't only a formal device but a way of investigating disparate feelings, particularly as they underscore the irresolvable tension between wonderment and memory."

This artist talk is one of a continuing series offered by the Southern Vermont Arts Center as a means for local artists to network and educate themselves on current trends and techniques. These events are free and open to the public.
