New Paintings: Nancy Bea Miller
April 1 @ 12:00 pm - April 28 @ 5:00 pmFree
From April 1 through April 29, 2022, the F.A.N. Gallery in Old City Philadelphia will present a one-person exhibition of works by well-known painter Nancy Bea Miller. The first solo exhibition in several years of Miller’s still-life and landscape paintings in oil, Nancy Bea Miller: New Paintings showcases the artist’s thoughtful and affirming representational work, at a time when we all need a little lift. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
More than forty oil paintings comprise the exhibition in sizes ranging from a few inches to a few feet. The majority of the paintings were created during the recent pandemic and are described by Miller as “the expression of ideas and feelings that have been forming in my mind for many years. Having a long period of enforced downtime meant that I finally had the time to focus more intensively on what I have been wanting to express.” The paintings merge techniques of alla prima (all in one go) painting, bravura brushstrokes and expressionistic knife work, with the delicacy of layered glazes and close attention to detail. The artist’s decades of exploration of the medium of oil paint show through in the confident fresh handling of paint texture and colors.
