August featured artist Pat Miller captures nature, one media at a time

August featured artist Pat Miller captures nature, one media at a time

Painter Pat Miller most often employs watercolor because “it best represents the natural world by using the properties of water, air, paint, earth, and paper. The medium is also transparent, perhaps a reflection of life itself.” Miller’s work will be featured at White River Gallery August 1-31.

Miller’s subjects range from flowers in her backyard to landscapes in far-off Alaska. Her geographic reach is mirrored in her expanding repertoire. “This past year I have been experimenting with mixed water media to enhance the color of the art work. I have been using watercolors, acrylics, liquid acrylics, watercolor pencils, crayons and Stabilito markers, after making numerous value sketches. Now I am endeavoring to master the medium of pastel as I have found the vibrant colors are able to show a creative exuberance for life.”

July 19 I Hate Hamlet by Paul Rudnick

Andrew Rally seems to have it all: celebrity and acclaim from his starring role in a hit television series, a rich, beautiful girlfriend, a glamorous, devoted agent, the perfect New York apartment, and the chance to play Hamlet in Central Park. However, everything is going wrong and Andrew has hit bottom. A visit from his agent results in a séance to summon John Barrymore's ghost; when Barrymore appears, Andrew's life is no longer under his control and hilarity ensues.
