Glen Miller’s  Ballads, Moments, and Journeys in the Milliken Art Gallery will feature the Greenville artist’s latest collection of paintings that reflect on his experiences with nature and thought. Miller’s interest with much of the work is to create images that evoke and perhaps celebrate quiet places and times, still moments that allow us to hear from greater depths, and images that suggest an individual search.

Miller will present a Gallery Talk on September 12th at 6:00pm in the gallery followed by a reception from 6:30-8:00pm. The exhibition is free of charge.
