Artistic traveler Fiona Miller to be featured at the Anna Bier Gallery


GREENVILLE — The Anna Bier Gallery will present architectural artist, Fiona Miller, at Henry St. Clair Memorial Hall in Greenville on Saturday, September 9. The exhibit will be open from 6 to 8 p.m. with an artist presentation at 7 p.m.

Miller is a watercolor artist from the UK. Her background and training is in the field of architecture: she has an MA (Cantab) in Architecture from Cambridge University and a postgraduate Diploma in Architecture from Oxford Brookes University.

She has always loved to explore! Her travels have taken her through many parts of the UK, Europe, Asia and the US: from the ancient streets of Rome, to the modern high-rises of San Francisco & New York. She and her family are now based in Xenia, Ohio.

Her work has been on show in North and South Carolina, California and Ohio; she has been published in several magazines and volunteers her time and work to battle against human trafficking.

“The space around me, people’s lives, and the buildings we inhabit: I find these things to be worthy of reflection and celebration. So I paint the beautiful and broken parts of our world, some found locally and some found on my travels. I try to share on paper the glimmers of beauty and redemption that I see. Watercolor is the medium I use to express my vision, often paired with ink pen, for I love the bright colors and lively line-work this combination can create. Sometimes I enjoy the intricate details of a small moment, sometimes a more free exploration of shape and color,” Miller said.

The Fiona Miller exhibit is sponsored by Second National Bank and will run through Saturday, September 30. This and all Anna Bier Gallery exhibits and events are also made possible through the gracious support of Ketrow Foundation, Lydia E. Schaurer Memorial Trust Fund, and Harry D. and Esther Stephens Memorial, as well as the generosity of private memberships. All exhibits are free to the public.

The exhibit will be open from 6 to 8 p.m. with an artist presentation at 7 p.m. on Saturday
