Summer colors art show

 

Mr. Miller is proud to have once again donated a painting (“Tangerine Summer”) to the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children Summer Colours special event.

Summer Colors is an idea born out of passion for both art and the patients of Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Founded in 2009 by Jenny and Loren Koziol, and Jill and Dupree Scovell, the silent art auction raises awareness about TSRHC while exposing the Dallas community to local artists.

Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children is one of the nation’s leading pediatric centers for the treatment of orthopedic conditions, certain related neurological disorders and learning disorders. The annual Summer Colors event provides a unique opportunity for artists to make a difference in the lives of TSRHC patients.

Starry Night Exhibit

"Starry Night" series by cjmiller was featured during the 2009 Out of the Loop Fringe Festival at WaterTower Theatre in Addison, Texas.

Artists' Statement:

several months ago, while waiting for an appointment, i read an interesting article in national geographic which discussed the disappearance of stars in the city skyline.  of course, they're still present, but the massive amounts of incandescent lighting being used in our urban skies is shielding them from our view.

i chose starry nights for the name of this exhibit for two reasons: one, because i always have been and will continue to be in awe of our nighttme sky.  the majesty and detail is breathtaking and calls me to sit, stare and reflect on the magnificence of the universe.  second, because the "loss of our stars" carries a deeper metaphysical meaning for me. i believe that this story is a metaphor for our connection to source and our true passions. the artificial lighting represents all the distractions of today's world. often we find too many inner voices clamoring for our attention. pulling us back from focus. so many, in fact, that we lose sight of our north star:

"The north star has been historically used for navigation, both to find the direction of north and to determine latitude. It has been used by lost campers to find their way back home."

it's a challenge to maintain your focus and align yourself with your true calling in this sometimes overwhelming era. each painting in this series is stylistically unique.  but each painting has one thing in common: they were all created while i was consciously maintaining my connection to source. perhaps someday my work will filter down to one or two stylized looks. or perhaps, like the starry night, it will continue to change, to sparkle, to reveal new light.
