    2. ART EXHIBITION: Spectrum: Artwork by Claudia Miller
      8:30 am – 12:30 pm

      Art, for me, is an expression that allows one’s spirit to transform what is seen, felt, and experienced into a kind of visual music. My subject matter ranges from meditation to joie  de vivre and takes form in landscapes, photo-graphs, mixed media, and abstract paintings. They may seem quite different from one another at first glance, but considered as a spectrum, there are consonances in line, form, color, and feeling. I especially enjoy a sense of musicality (visual movement of forms) as well as composition (interweaving dominant and secondary areas). Whatever the subject, each painting in its own way attempts to incorporate an awareness of Divine meaning in an earthly existence. Claudia Miller has an art degree/painting emphasis (Asbury University) and interior design degree (University of Kentucky).  Over the last 25 years she has worked professionally in interior design and has served as visual arts director and graphic designer at the Lexington Art League.  Claudia has exhibited her paintings in and around Lexington, KY, since the mid-1990s.  Now retired and a member of CIVA, she and her husband, Jerry, reside in Wilmore, KY, and have two adult children with spouses, three grandchildren, and a cat and dog.

      Art, for me, is an expression that allows one’s spirit to transform what is seen, felt, and experienced into a kind of visual music. My subject matter ranges from meditation to joie  de vivre and takes form in landscapes, photo-graphs, mixed media, and abstract paintings. They may seem quite different from one another at first glance, but considered as a spectrum, there are consonances in line, form, color, and feeling. I especially enjoy a sense of musicality (visual movement of forms) as well as composition (interweaving dominant and secondary areas). Whatever the subject, each painting in its own way attempts to incorporate an awareness of Divine meaning in an earthly existence. Claudia Miller has an art degree/painting emphasis (Asbury University) and interior design degree (University of Kentucky).  Over the last 25 years she has worked professionally in interior design and has served as visual arts director and graphic designer at the Lexington Art League.  Claudia has exhibited her paintings in and around Lexington, KY, since the mid-1990s.  Now retired and a member of CIVA, she and her husband, Jerry, reside in Wilmore, KY, and have two adult children with spouses, three grandchildren, and a cat and dog.
