Artwork part of "New Paintings: Nancy Bea Miller" exhibition

New Paintings: Nancy Bea Miller

From April 1 through April 29, 2022, the F.A.N. Gallery will present a one-person exhibition of works by 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.
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.
