August 29 – October 6, 2018
Opening Reception September 5, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Artist Workshop Saturday, September 8, 11 a.m.
Kimberly Miller's Analog/ Dialog explores the concept of "generosity" by using her art as the medium to explain it. Miller chose to work with collage and watercolor because they have a handmade quality that can be scarce in the digital age. So rarely do people receive something handmade—whether it's a meal, a letter, or an object, so when people receive hand-made items they tend to cherish it. Most of what the artist has made for this exhibition will be given away, with the hope that the receiver feels encouraged by the artwork.
Each collage on exhibition has an opening line of text from a letter someone has been meaning to send. The artist requested from friends and family to share the first line of a letter they've been writing in their heads for days, weeks or years but for one reason or another hadn't yet taken the time to put pen to paper and send. The hope is that these unsent lines would inspire visitors to the gallery to send a letter to someone they've meant to write too.
All of the artwork in the exhibition is available for free—however, the artist requests that the audience not keep the art for themselves and send it to someone else.
